The “Herdade das Altas Moras”, before this name, was a village of the Late Middle Age, in the 15th century. Being a high point with houses, this place was known as Altas Moradias and, over time, it changed to Altas Moras. Even today, traces of these houses can be found in the property.
In 1850, Manuel Quaresma Limpo Pereira de Lacerda acquired the Herdade das Altas Moras, and was later entitled, by King D. Luis, Viscount of Altas Moras.
