It is the initial landmark of the settlement of Castro, from the sesmaria donated to the Taques de Almeida family. It was owned by the Carmelite friars, who, when they retired to São Paulo, left the farm in the care of their slaves for about 100 years. It was acquired in 1870 by Bonifácio José Batista (Barão do Monte Carmelo) who built the current mansion. The houses were listed by the State Historical and Artistic Heritage in 1982.
