Originally, the house had a ground floor for commercial purposes and the main floor for family accommodation. It was in this house that Eng. Duarte Pacheco was born.
Rectangular in plan, the House in Memory of Eng. Duarte Pacheco was altered in 1991, when the City Council took ownership of it. It received classification as a Monument of Municipal Interest, in 2019.
Some of the temporary exhibitions of Loulé Municipal Museum are held here.
