Designer Daily has just published photos of Northern Portugal's Casa do Penedo, or Stone House, which was built in 1974 as one family's mountain retreat. Despite the fact that it resembles a prehistoric dwelling—all the press it's gotten have likened it to the Flintstones' home—its modern amenities include a fireplace and a swimming pool. Not to mention the throngs of tourists who now flock to see the architectural wonder—even the owner has moved to avoid the hubbub, presumably to a boring ol' regular house.
