Built on 1523, this unique facade even survived the devastation of the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755 to remain one of the most unique buildings in the oldest district in Lisbon. The building houses a foundation that promotes the humanitarian literature and goals of Nobel Prize winner José Saramago. Saramago, well loved by his native Portuguese but disliked by his government and The Church (he was both a communist and an atheist), lived his last 18 years and died in Spain after a falling out regarding his book, The Gospel According to Jesus Christ. Satire didn't go over well at the time. The Foundation sponsors readings, book signings and talks on environment, society and culture as well as keep a reading room stocked with Saramago.

Cordoba, Spain

Construida en 1523, esta casa del barrio de Alfama tiene una de las fachadas más bonitas de la ciudad. Aunque fue casi destruida por el gran terremoto de 1755, recientemente ha sido renovada y se pueden contemplar perfectamente los "bicos", las piedras talladas con punta de diamante.
Ahora mismo alberga una Fundación José Saramago, con una exposición permanente sobre la vida y obra del autor.

Madrid, Spain

En el barrio de la Alfama de Lisboa se encuentra esta peculiar casa construida en el siglo XVI. La fachada tiene piedras talladas en forma de piedras pecosas, y le da un toque muy original y peculiar. Las puertas y ventanas tienen tamaños y disposiciones particulares lo que le otorga un toque muy especial
