We were at the end of the eighteenth century, when the Leite family acquired a large place near the spot of Poiares Seara. Its owner, fascinated by the beauty of the place and its excellent location, access promptly invested in the property and the planting of vineyards, olive and almond trees. Years later, his son, although a military career, never stopped worrying about the property and its development. Meanwhile he became the commander of the Lamego’s barracks, but still spent much time on their ownership of Seara. During his absence from the barracks soldiers were sent to Seara to receive orders of the commander.
