From a distance, this just looks like a pile of massive boulders.
But when you get in closer, you realize that it’s actually a house.
Despite its appearance, Casa de Penedo, which means “cliff house,” wasn’t built by mountain trolls.
It was was completed in 1974, and was built using four massive boulders at its corners for support.
Nestled in the Fafe Mountains in Portugal, visiting Casa de Penedo is like stepping into a fantasy land.
The museum sits at an elevation of about 2,600 feet, so it’s quite windy.
There’s no electricity, so visitors have to make their way around by candlelight.
Despite its remote location, Casa de Penedo has become a popular tourist attraction.
And it’s easy to see why.
Especially under the night sky.
