Named after the Indian-inspired additions contributed by its recent “hippie” owners, Gulab Mahal is a fusion of Portuguese and South Asian, with a generous dash of its native Bahian thrown in for good measure.
This two-bedroom, traditional fishermen’s house boasts carved hardwood windows and doors and even a raised mezzanine “meditation” area, plus tiered gardens, indoor/outdoor kitchen and stunning views of Trancoso’s historic Quadrado. In short: it’s a history lesson of immigration to Trancoso, from the Portuguese Jesuits in the 1500s to the international “hippies” of the 20th century.
