Perched on a hill in the Portuguese countryside is yet another example of odd, eccentric architecture. Apparently inspired by The Flintstones and the aesthetic of Stone Age living, the Stone House, or Casa do Penedo, sent interwebers astir, calling out, "Hoax!" But as it turns out the house does in fact exist. The Daily Mail even found it on Google Maps.
To add more evidence to the camp of believers, the house has been featured in the Portuguese film Moon. The two-story home was built in 1974 between four large boulders as a rural retreat, but has recently become more of a tourist attraction than a weekend getaway haven.
