THE HOUSE. EL RACÓ DE VALL-DE-ROURES
The house is dated in 1689; integrated in the listed and protected architectonic set of Vall-de-Roures, it is located in the second line of the medieval town of the village and as its architecture and design is characteristic of the rural architecture of Terol, with self-construction procedures, climate adjustment and the use of natural materials from the surroundings (stone, wood…) When the house restoration began, there were still traces of the building adaptation to the uses and customs of that age in that rural surrounding.
As an exemple, the ground floor was the farmyard; quite probably, horses, donkeys, roosters and hens occupied that part of the house accessible to the animals at street level. Oil and wine mills supplying the house in the stark winters of el Matarranya can be found at the bottom of this floor. As a way of welcoming you still will be able to find big carved stones surrounded by small river stones. Peculiar architectonic elements have been preserved by the owners to be as loyal as possible to the architectonical essence of the historical artistic set.
