Real Life Flintstones House Lures Tourists in Portugal

Real Life Flintstones House Lures Tourists in Portugal | Expat Living in Portugal | Scoop.it

It's a bit of a shame that the easiest way to describe this magnificent structure requires reference to a cartoon from the 1960s, but the way in which it incorporates its natural setting defies most conventional description. Located in the Fafe mountains of northern Portugal, A Casa do Penedo, or "the House of Stone," was built between four large boulders found on the site. Although the house may seem rustic, it is not lacking in amenities, which include a fireplace and a swimming pool--carved out of one of the large rocks. But, as word has spread, the sleepy little house has had visitors venturing to see it in droves.

Jared Medeiros's curator insight, April 29, 2015 6:25 PM

A very rare and cool looking home here in Portugal.  Im very surprised to see this home here though.  I would think of many European countries that would have a home like this, especially somewhere in the United Kingdom.  But the portuguese people are usually very skilled in carpentry and take great pride in building certain styles of home.  Not that this is not an amazing feat to accomplish, it just seems out of charachter for the country.

Submarine Corruption drowns Integrity of Politicians in Portugal

Submarine Corruption drowns Integrity of Politicians in Portugal | Expat Living in Portugal | Scoop.it

'Here’s the convoluted story in a nutshell: in 2004, then Portuguese Defence minister (and current Foreign minister) Paulo Portas signed a billion euro contract to buy two submarines from the German Submarine Consortium (GSC), composed of German companies HDW, Ferrostaal and Thyssen. In 2006, the deal came under the attention of the public prosecutor’s office, which has since been investigating the transaction for suspicions of corruption, collusion, money laundering and illegal party financing, allegedly benefiting the Christian Democratic party led by Paulo Portas, which was then (as it is now) the junior partner in the governing coalition.'

Wines of Portugal: Discover the dry

Wines of Portugal: Discover the dry | Expat Living in Portugal | Scoop.it

Mention Portugal to a wine drinker and their thoughts immediately turn to port. It’s a natural process given the consistent quality of this sweet, fortified wine but there is more to Portuguese wine. Portugal is also dry wine country and what these producers lack in fame, they more than make up for in volume by producing a whopping 94 per cent of the country’s total, average, wine production.

A fortnight is a long time in the euro crisis. In two short weeks Portugal has gone from being a model pupil, praised in Brussels and Frankfurt for steadfastly pressing ahead with a reform programme tied to a €78 billion ($101 billion) bail-out to a cautionary example of the dangers facing governments which attempt to push austerity beyond the tolerance of long-suffering voters.
