These old grain stores were specially constructed to keep rats and mice out.

Beautiful horreos or whatever they are called in Portugal. They are very typical in O Galiza also. Big _like :-) nik

Thanks nik for enlightening me on their proper name-which is the same in Portugal. I'm not surprised you have them in Galicia, which is just north of here. Best wishes - Jim

When I first saw the picture I thought they were tombs. Grain stores make sense, great shot as well. LIKE

Jim Mills on February 16, 2011

Thanks very much 3_Wheels for your visit and like. I had the same impression as you when I first saw a picture of these in a guide book. I guess the crosses on top are meant to give Divine protection as well! Greetings and best wishes from beamish boy - IRELAND
