Collection(s)What attracts the visitor and has special value in terms of the character of this place is the house itself wherein lies the ethnographic exhibition. The 110 years old house was constructed with a stone masonry technique that uses stone slabs interwoven with clay and sand. The stone slabs are rigorously sorted by thickness and they are almost perfectly aligned in rows. The customary porch is built only along the larger side of the living room. The porch entrance lies on the shorter side with the entrance to the small hallway on the opposite side. This system allows for better temperature management inside the house during the winter months. Access to the house proper is gained through the hallway, where old wooden beams used to be but they were covered because of decay. The house used to be covered with straw placed on hardwood rafters, called prongs, but nowadays it is covered with ceramic tile. The interior finish of the walls is made of what is known in the area as “muruialǎ” (a type of clay based stucco) over which whitewash was applied.
