The "Cego de Landim" - the title of the Camilo's tale attributed to this room - summary of the story
This room is named after one of the novels by Camilo Castelo Branco - the greatest writer by the Portuguese novelist. This room is suitable for people with reduced mobility as it is located on the ground floor of the house.
Camilo writes the adventurous story of António José Pinto Monteiro, from Landim, where he was born, to Brazil, where he emigrated, and vice versa. It circulates between the two sides of the law, weaves fortunes and ruins, distrust and admiration, promotes marriages and deaths.
Like those characters he met in the Porto prison, where he was imprisoned between 1860 and 1861, and whose profiles he drew, showing the dignity and humanity of the criminals who expiated their crimes in those dungeons, Camilo did the same with the blind man from Landim.
He calls "slander" the news that António Pinto Monteiro had perpetrated the murder of a neighbouring farmer. For the writer, the real person responsible for the murder was the blind man's former bookkeeper, Amaro Faial. Another accusation that the novelist seeks to refute is that Joana Maria Alves, the widow of a Brazilian, lived with the blind man, coerced by him.
The blind man had three children and died in Landim. His last words, in the delirium that preceded his death, contain all the morality of this biography: "- I had three children that I raised with so much love... So, where are they?"
