Quinta da Cholda (Azinhaga do Ribatejo) is located in the municipality of Golegã in the district of Santarém, Portugal. With a history of several centuries, little is known until 1755, the year in which the original farm was destroyed in that year’s Earthquake and rebuilt at a later date.
In 1923, Quinta da Cholda was acquired by João da Assunção Coimbra (1866-1956) from Luís Oliveira Sommer, owner of Quinta da Cardiga, which once belonged to the Templars Knights.
João da Assunção Coimbra began working at Quinta da Melhorada (Pombalinho) at the age of 16 to learn the trade of a carpenter, practicing for several years. In the course of his long life, João da Assunção Coimbra became, at age 23, a tenant and, later, also as owner of several properties in Casével, Pombalinho, Azinhaga do Ribatejo, Golegã, Carregado and Chouto, south of the Tagus River.
Currently, Quinta da Cholda is managed by the third generation of descendants of João da Assunção Coimbra.
