"(...) full of memories and histories
of the Mendes family."
Chão do Ribeiro is full of memories and histories of the Mendes family. Great-grandparents Carmo and Joaquim Mendes lived there.
The first and second floors were the family’s home, while on the ground floor there was a “fine footwear” manufacturer. This workshop belonged to Mestre Mendes, who, together with other workers, produced all the footwear by hand, in an artisanal way. Special footware for Church and special occasions.
Over time, it became necessary to refurbish the house. This “memory book” could not be missed. The improvement and expansion works carried out provided the house with the appropriate amenities for today, maintaining its traditional design and setting in the region.
Casa do Chão do Ribeiro is located near the main church, next to a gentle valley where there are several cultivated fields and close to the Ribeira do Boco which runs through the village and which inspired the very name of the house. The surrounding fields are still cultivated and, depending on the time of year, provide fruit, vegetables and flowers, or serve as pasture for some of the characteristic flocks of sheep and goats.
