The house was built from an old rural house that served as a shelter for seasonal workers who came to pick olives and grapes. It was composed of three threshing floors, two of which still retain their traces on the ground of the property that houses several types of trees: ash, hawthorn, fig trees and an oak tree with several hundred years.
