A 1753 map by engineer André Schwebell, a German military man who came to Belém as part of Boundaries Commission, shows that at the location of the Casa Rosada, there already existed a building in the shape of "L", the body of the which faced current Siqueira Mendes street and the contiguous plot, the bottom and the side of which may have been the building’s courtyard or backyard, a peculiar feature of Belém of yore.
