The house in which Asunta Basterra was murdered has been sold

Until a few hours ago, the Montouto (Teo) farm was a place of pilgrimage for tourists where there was even an altar in memory of Asunta, who was murdered by her adoptive parents, Rosario Porto and Alfonso Basterra, inside.

A place that Teresa Sampedro, friend and legal heir of Rosario Porto, was having serious problems selling. However, she has achieved it, because the property where the crime that shocked Galicia and Spain took place already has new owners.

According to El Correo Gallego, Teo's family home where little Asunta lost her life in 2013 has finally been sold. Of course, the price of the house and its property, which was initially one million euros, was reduced almost by half. Finally, it has been sold with “a significant discount” due to crime and its current state of abandonment.

The property has no less than 400 useful square meters built on a property of 10,000, all of it protected by a huge wall. It has numerous trees, among which trees, cedars and cypresses stand out. Among the monuments in the garden, a large stone cross, built by Rosario Porto's parents.

The family house consists of five double bedrooms, five bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, terrace, four comfortable living rooms, laundry room, a huge garden with swimming pool and tennis court, wine cellar with bar, a lareira, a granary and garage. It has all the comforts: furniture in all the rooms, lighting, laundry room, heating, paving, armored door and utilities.

It must be added that the property has a history of occupations, since in addition to being a black tourism point that attracts all kinds of people curious about the macabre murder, the Civil Guard has appeared at the chalet on several occasions to arrest occupants. Additionally, in 2020, a fire significantly damaged the structure.

The family farm, originally owned by Rosario Porto's parents, was inherited by María Teresa Sampedro, after Asunta's mother took her life in Brieva prison in November 2020. In addition to the extensive property of Teo, Sampedro inherited two apartments in Santiago de Compostela and another on the beach of As Sinas (Vilanova de Arousa).

It is not the only “cursed” property that is part of the Spanish black chronicle of the area. Not far away, in Moraña (Pontevedra), there is another property that cannot be sold. This is the house of David Oubel, the first person sentenced in Spain to permanent, reviewable prison, who ended the life of his daughters, Candela (9) and Amaia (4), with a radial saw in 2013.
