Casa Grande de Juncais is a granite manour of the 16th century, classified as building of public interest, with crest of the Barata Veloso family - it’s all-time owners - chapel, two inner courtyards and a garden with a fountain of pure spring water. It was the residence of D. Maria do Patrocínio Barata Veloso (daughter of António Veloso Aragão Costa e Abreu and Maria Benedita Vasconcellos e Sá), married to Jerónimo Frederico de Moraes Cerveira, great grandfathers of the present owner.
Founding house of the village of Juncais, it occupies one entire side of the town square, where a fountain is still used by shepherds congregating from neighbouring streets. The square is the town's communitarian centre where everyday as well as on festivities its inhabitants meet.
The townsfolk's quarrels were traditionally brokered by the owners of Casa Grande. The house enjoyed the privilege of asylum "nobody who took refuge there could be arrested".
It became a guest house in 2005, with a decoration that blended harmoniously the pre-existing period furniture of the house, with pieces amassed during trips around the world, as well as design items and contemporary painting.
