Porta do Soar

Besides a sheltered entry balcony, it has a peculiar corner window bearing an epigraph on the precariousness of human life

Casa do Soar dates back to the 17th century. Besides a sheltered entry balcony – which is nowadays sealed by a wall and a gate, completely different from original style – it has a peculiar corner window bearing an epigraph on the precariousness of human life: Homo Bulla, i.e. Man as a soap bubble, so light that it quickly vanishes in the air.
