Quinta da Eira Velha
My parents decided to build a country house back in the 90’s in Western Portugal Subregion. When they bought the land it was all eucalyptus and ruins of an old house, a lagar (traditional Portuguese concrete vessel used for treading grapes by foot for winemaking) and a threshing-floor (ground for threshing or treading out grain). The latter named the house: Quinta da Eira Velha (“Farm of the Old Threshing-floor”).
This house became the second home of my family where we spend quiet weekends, major holidays and special occasions. This is a very special house for my family (especially my dad) so I decided to illustrate it.
