History

Mouro's House was named after one of the fountains in the property.

Moorish (Mouro, in portuguese) fountain was, according to the story, frequently used by a worker known as "the Moorish", due to his darker skin.

Local elder people told us that, the former owners of this property, back then very fertile had several employees to work. One of them, with darker skin was known as the moor, as people thought that he descended from the moors that in antiquity settled in the region of Marvão. As this man liked to drinking water from this fountain and was known among the workers as a man who knew some spells, the remain workers preferred to drink from another fountain a few meters away. 

That's the reason why this fountain came to be known as the Moorish Fountain.
