In the 19th century, Sintra's village was a fabulous inspiration for artists and writers of the Romantic period, which attracted increasingly the Nobility and Bourgeoisie of that time and consequently Palaces, Manor Houses and Chalets were built. At that time, one of the most prestigious manor houses was built, Quinta do Saldanha, which is part of the history of Sintra's village.

This manor house was commissioned in 1830 by the Marquis of Saldanha, maternal grandson of the Marquis of Pombal, Prime Minister of King Jose. It was built on the terrace of the mountain and in the shadow of Castelo dos Mouros, with a privileged view of Sintra's National Palace. Two houses were built on this manor house: one on the higher part and another on a lower level, the first one for the Marquis and the second one for his mother. His mother's house took the name Casa Italiana (Italian House) because it was designed by a highly prestigious Italian architect who conceived a project for a semicircular building and where Italian workers and artists were employed to paint the frescos both outside and inside.
