This chalet, dated from 1888, was constructed by José Dias Alves Pimenta including a large garden. José Dias Alves Pimenta had businesses in Brazil and was a member and also president of "Ateneu Comercial do Porto". He was neighbour of the well-known painter Aurélia de Sousa, resident in China Manor House, that offered him some of her paintings. José Dias Alves Pimenta passed away in 1925 and his house stayed in the family. Since 1990 the house is property of the municipality and it is in an advanced state of degradation (Source: Jorge Ricardo Pinto (2011), Bonfim - Território de Memórias e Destinos).
