Sortelha

In Rua Dá Mesquita is the Arab House near Porta Falsa and Facho Tower. It is a simple, traditional one-storey, L-shaped building with straight lintel doors with no frames with an inscription: "Jhvs Ave Maria". It probably dates back to the 14th century, considering the bevelled doorposts and the cursive gothic inscription. The house is currently used for tourism.
