In Aldeia do Bispo, a small village in the province of Sabugal, we find Casas da Pedra, in the Pocinho area. In the 40’s and 50’s, Pocinho was one of the vital centers of Aldeia do Bispo. There was a fountain, there was the Civil Registry and the Post Office (in the house of one of the members of the Town Council, the “Ti” Armindo Lopes), there was the “Old School” the seat of the Junta), from there the transport departed and arrived the three trades and two taverns: “Ti” Candida, “Ti” Armindo and “Ti” Vieira.
The Casas da Pedra, a set of 6 independent, fully equipped accommodation units, are named after the large slab of the South wall, which has been used for decades for young people to chat and giggle night indoors.
This project was born in the heart of a family who wanted to rehabilitate the houses and give some brightness to the center of their village.
