Situated at the historical center of Santarém, surrounded by important monuments, “The House of the Arch” is itself part of the History of this city. When the owners began the works of restoration, transforming the “old” house into a modern and functional place, they gave prominence to an arch with a considerable size, from the Gothic period, one of the most important in Santarém a city known as “Capital of the Gothic style”. This finding allows the Guest to feel himself an inhabitant of History.
