Presentation
This "House of Spikes" is an architectural curiosity, faced with diamond-shaped stones (a total of 1125).

It is a 16th century palace that belonged to Afonso de Albuquerque, the Portuguese viceroy of India, and is one of the very few buildings that survived the 1755 earthquake.

It is thought to have been modelled on the palaces of Venice, although the two upper floors have exuberant arched windows characteristic of the Portuguese Manueline style.

Its interior is occupied by the Saramago Foundation, a space dedicated to the Nobel Prize-winning Portuguese writer. It hosts special literary events and contains the author's library.

There are tourist shops in the vicinity as well as cheap restaurants known for their traditional grilled fish dishes.
