What do you think of this crazy stone house tucked into the Fafe Mountains in Portugal?  Constructed between two giant stones and linked with a concrete mix, the house is rumored to be inspired by the popular American Flintstones cartoon.  Although quite unusual, the prehistoric-looking residence does feature some traditional components such as windows, a front door, and even a shingled roof.  As you might expect, the house’s design attracts thousands of tourists each year.
