Casa dos Bicos, Rua dos Bacalhoeiros, Lisbon

Dating back to the early sixteenth century, the Casa dos Bicos' facade is covered in 1,000 diamond-shaped stones. Once the home of the viceroy of Portuguese India, it is now part of the Lisbon Museum and the headquarters of the José Saramago Foundation, celebrating the Portuguese writer who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
