CONDE DE BAYONA

conde de bayona

This beautiful mausoleum belongs to Manuel Misa y Bertemati, a Spanish sherry producer born in 1815. Manuel moved to London from Spain and was important in making sherry one of England’s most popular Victorian drinks: in the mid 19th century 43% of all wine imports to England were sherry! Victorian visitors dropping by a middle class home would be offered a glass of sherry and a biscuit. Manuel became a generous philanthropist during his lifetime. His mausoleum was likely designed by him before he died, and has lovely Gothic features - a roof made of ‘fishscale’ tiles, elaborate ironwork, a painted ceiling, stone sculpture and stained glass. These have all been recently restored.
