Architecturally, the Palace of Lanheses, is one of the best examples of a Minho manor house of the late 18th century. The house has remained in the family of the Counts of Almada since being built and has been preserved in its original state as far as possible whilst recognizing modern trends such as en suite bathrooms!

In the grounds, is the old Lanheses pillory which has been classified as a national monument.
