Situated in Idanha-a-Velha, near the Paleochristan Basilica and part of the Roman villa dating back to the 1st century BC, the manor known as the Morocco House, was built during the 20th century and is still unfinished. The manor is believed to have been built on the ancient Roman forum.
It belonged to one of the most important landowning families in the region and includes several livestock buildings around courtyards that form a large enclosed block.
Built in the 1950s in an eclectic style along the lines of the late ‘Portuguese Suave’, although by an unknown architect, it is notable for its various architectural solutions, including the granite stonework. Another highlight is the interior granite spiral staircase that services all the three floors.
