The construction of the Stone House Museum, in Caxias do Sul, dates from the 19th century, when the first families of Italian immigrants arrived in the southern region of Brazil.
Outside, the picturesque appearance of the house impresses: rocks settled and grouted with clay form the walls of both floors. Internally, on the ground floor, there are the living room and the kitchen, with pots, a rustic stove stuck in stone, a huge table, suitable for large family and Italian Catholic Saints.
Upstairs is the bedroom, which features small and essential furniture. Who passes the eyes quickly and just keep listening carefully the guide, may lose one of the delights of this tour, which is to imagine the history of each piece.
Outside is the vineyard, almost obvious in a city that is today in power production of grapes and derivatives. Next, fruit trees and an artisan oven. Typical Italian yard.
The local does not accommodate very large groups.
As it is made of stone, the place gets very cold in the winter. Wear hat and gloves.
It is forbidden to enter with food or drink.
