The pilgrims walking through a province of Lugo that is covered with small mountains are passing a lot of villages. The farmers have a family's farms where they work. From time to time around the household the pilgrims can see a small corn silos. They are built with concrete and wood like this one on the photo or also with the wood completely or corrugated bricks. It is very interesting piece of small rural architecture.
This photo was shot 698 km (436 miles) from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port and 66 km (41 miles) before Santiago de Compostela.

Quelle structure originale. J'aime la diagonale qu'elle forme dans l'image. On dirait presque du noir et blanc tellement les détails ressortent bien.

I am envious, sauntering the Camino Santiago. I just watched Rick Steeve's program on the pilgrimage from the French border to Santiago de Compostela. I would truly enjoy becoming a pilgrim on this sojourn, especially the part with the scallop sea shell on my backpack.
And fine view of this classical rock corn silo, unlike any I have seen in the States. I suspect it is elevated to protect corn harvested from animals, especially pesky squirrels.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Zbigniew, A very interesting architecture you show here. Nice POV and the angle taken give a nice sense of depth to the frame. I like its original composition. Thank for sharing

To jest rzeczywiście niespotykane, ciekawostka, o której nigdy jeszcze nie słyszałem bardzo ciekawe, pewnie jest jakaś przyczyna, dlaczego to jest na takiej wysokiej podmurówce

Interesting architecture and all is done to stop rats and mice having access to the corn while at the same time providing ventilation above the stone barriers at the base. Fascinating photo. Regards. Klaudio.
