Since the late 19th century, the farmhouse of Pereira Alves de Matos Carreira – nowadays the Agricultural Museum Dona Julinha – has been one of the great farmhouses in Leiria.
This museological project began on 11th July 2002, when D. Maria Leonilde, also known as Dona Julinha, donated part of the farmhouse Pereira Alves de Matos Carreira’s estate to Leiria City Hall while maintaining usufruct of the property for herself. Ever since, Leiria City Hall has restored and adapted the farming buildings and nearby areas, to preserve them and to establish an interactive and interpretative museological circuit.
