The Palace was built at the orders of José Luís Constantino, the Marquis of Valle Flor – the great cacao production pioneer in Sao Tome and Principe in the 19th century. He was son of a farming family of the Trás-os-Montes Region, and went to Sao Tome and Principe in 1871 in search of agricultural opportunities and the organisation of the territory. From 1012 to 1915, the archipelago became the largest cacao producer in the world. He held many positions of service to the Portuguese kingdom thanks to his loyalty to the colonial policy, and was named Marquis by King Carlos for his persistent entrepreneurial spirit.

The Palace was projected by the Italian architect Nicola Bigaglia, the decoration being inspired by the times of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI as the Marquis also owned a small Palace in Paris. The result was an eclectic mix of his experiences in Sao Tome, Portugal and France. One century later, the Palace is shining again, now as one of the world´s best hotels.
