Arte Leite

Preserving memories, culture, customs and history of Portugal through handmade miniature typical houses.

Portugal is not a very large country, but has an admirable architectural and cultural diversity, reflected in the traditional houses of each region. This huge diversity is something that fills us with pride and is urgent to preserve.

These are the foundations of Arte Leite, the culmination of a dream of an artisan from Guimarães. João Leite intends to accompany you on a journey through Portuguese customs, culture and traditions. He crafts with his own hands miniatures of typical Portuguese Houses.

All the replicas are hand painted and handmade using granite, roof tile and wood, preserving the authenticity and memories of Portugal's typical houses.

His talent has been awarded several times in exhibitions to which he has been invited to participate with his artworks.
