This medieval, recently rebuilt house is composed by a hall, 2 bedrooms, kitchen, pantry, bathroom, a large living and two yards, an interior yard and another outdoors.
This began to be a Visigotic Castle, from the 8. century, rebuilt several times until Middle Ages. As it stays close to the frontier, it was place of fights between Portuguese and Spanish Kings and/or Lords.
