Built about 1758 by D. Joana Teresa de Carvalho Esmeraldo and her husband, Sargento-mor Francisco Roque de Albuquerque Figueirôa, incorporating a number of 16th and 17th century buildings, as a residential town palace. Since 1868 Funchal's city hall has been installed here. In 1939-1940 a profound transformation took place, under project of architects Raul Lino and Carlos Ramos. The lateral and posterior facades date from that time.
