Situated in the eastern part of the city of Porto, the Faculty of Fine Arts is installed in an old palatial house from the nineteenth century whose construction was requested by its owner António Ribeiro Fernandes Forbes, a Portuguese man that was emigrated in Brazil. The building was only concluded after his death by his wife Maria do Carmo Rodrigues Forbes. A few years later, the owner of this building was José Teixeira da Silva Braga who designed the lush garden that can be found inside the property with the help of the Belgian landscaper Florent Claes, who introduced several rare and exotic flora species (Source: Jorge Ricardo Pinto (2011), Bonfim - Território de Memórias e Destinos).
