Solar Branco 1885 is located just above the small town of Livramento. There are several original manor houses or “Solares” located within the parish, constructed during the first half of the 19th century, during the height of citrus production. Take a step back in history and discover more about this trade between the island and the United Kingdom.

The “Solares” or “Grand townhouses” reflect the wealth the citrus trade with the UK generated in the early eighteenth century.

Take a guided tour around the Solar Branco Eco-Estate gardens learning about the citrus trade between the Azores and the UK. This is followed by a walk around the town of Livramento taking in several other “Solares.”

The tour finishes back at Solar Branco for complimentary refreshments, with a choice of G&T or a cup of tea.
