Photographer's Note

And this is Lindoso, that has probably the biggest concentration of Espigueiros in the country – around 70, dating between the end of the 18th and the 20th C. These can be divided in several groups according the materials of construction, but they are considered as being of good quality and they are placed on the slope that leads to the castle, around one single treshing floor, which shows the strong feeling of community that existed here. Most part of them are still being used, but they are now protected.
Here we can see some of them and part of the castle in background. From there, it’s possible to have a wonderful view of the mountains around and the Lima River.

bona, Vasa has marked this note useful
