Sobreiro – A funny idea

To see A small and rather common village, where an artisan decided to put his love to Portugal in clay.

Since then, his imagination and art put Sobreiro in the touristy circuit, amusing children, but also showing to foreigners the traditional look of popular Portugal.

Sobreiro – Aldeia de José Franco

​Aldeia (Village) de José Franco

Sobreiro would be just another village if José Franco didn’t have the idea of building a large collection of miniatures of people and places in Portugal.

Now, it is a very visited place close to Lisbon, specially for those travelling with children.

​José Franco died, but the place remains functional, as I confirmed in the first day of the year, when trying to show it to Diogo, I decided, facing the crowds, to postpone the new visit.
