When 100 years have passed since the death of António Augusto de Carvalho Monteiro (1848-1920), the cultivator at Quinta da Regaleira, born in Rio de Janeiro on 27th November 1848 and died at his palace in Sintra on 25th October 1920, the Fundação Cultursintra evokes the memory of so distinguished Portuguese, due to his unavoidable and timeless heritage.

As part of the broad commemorative program for the celebration of the centenary of the death of António Augusto de Carvalho Monteiro, Fundação Cultursintra also solemnized his date of birth, on 27th November, with a recital performed by pianist Raul Pinto and whose recording is available on the Quinta da Regaleira YouTube channel at youtube.com/quintadaregaleira
