QUINTA DO BARRIEIRO
Surrounded by the amazing scenery of Serra de S. Mamede Natural Park, Quinta do Barrieiro locates very close to Marvão. In an environment that contrasts with the typical landscape of Alentejo, the lime, the schist, the water and the green give a special charm to this place. But what really distinguishes it, making it unique, is the artistic sensibility of its owners.With his architectonic expertise, José Manuel Coelho managed to skilfully explore the specificity of the region’s typical architecture and materials.He has designed an involving scenic space that superbly blends modernity and tradition. A rural-chic landscape that is the perfect exhibition stage to the amazing metal/stone sculptures of his wife, Maria Leal da Costa.
