Casa do Correio - Miranda do Douro - Freixiosa – Rural Tourism
The house Casa do Correio has been carefully rebuilt and decorated having in mind the comfort of those who want to enjoy from it.

In the exterior, the rural architectural traces of the region were kept.

A place with more than 75 years of history
The original house was built in the 1930s and it was the place where the village people went to send and receive mail and, later, also to make phone calls to their family and friends, therefore making it the meeting point in the village.
It was the place where all the news from family and friends, as well as from the World in general, could be known.
The current owners have recovered this place naming it as Casa do Correio (Mail House), as a tribute to its former functions, in order to keep it as a reference point for the village.
