Description:

A Portuguese architecture pearl surrounded by fantastic mountain views.  Both the city of Galicia and the north of Portugal have thousands of these granaries that can be built of stone or wood. In Soajo they are of stone and rest on stone supports. Each one has a stone cross at the ends. In Galicia they are called hórreos and in Portugal espigueiros. Here, sitting on a rocky hill, there are 24 granaries entirely made of granite. The oldest dates from 1782. They were placed on a high point above the village so that rodents couldn't get to the dry corn inside. The walls have small openings so the air can circulate among the corn cobs, which are piled inside. On top there is a small cross that shows the devotion of the population and the beseeching of divine protection for their crops. YOu can do a complete hike in M530 road and start from granaries and finish coming back to parking lot.
