Thank you!
This sleepy village lies in the heart of quinta country. In its most meager manifestation, a quinta is a simple farmhouse surrounded by land. At its best, it's a mansion of great architectural style filled with art. Tile making is still a living tradition in this region, thanks to the creativity of its craftsmen and the existence of workshops that keep up the ancient tradition of tile manufacture
