‘The house, which develops horizontally and is characterized by a large central projecting upper body, presents a facade of a certain simplicity, but reveals in its interior the opulent taste of the time, especially in the decoration of some rooms richly worked of stucco and in whose ceilings are preserved paintings of some interest. The most notable is the large ballroom, which occupies the central body of the house, which is both magnificent and cold in the profusion of stuccoes, mirrors and paintings, signed by some Portuguese and Italian artists of the time. The House of Estói also gathers several canvases of Maria Baretta and Adolph Greno (1854-1901), Portuguese painter that collaborated with Domingos Coast in the decoration of the interior of the Church of Estói.”
