Casa das Pedriñas is the dream of the miner Daniel Mancebo, better known in his hometown as “El Bailarín.” From 1970 until his death in 1998, Daniel saved as much money as he could to decorate this house with thousands of small stones. He collected them in the nearby mountains. Then, he polished them with his mallet.
Daniel never got to finish his work, nor did he live inside the house regularly. The house is currently abandoned due to the high economic maintenance that it demands from his heirs.
