A wonderfull picture, but you have the name wrong. This specific mountain farm area is callen Berildstølen and is still in use today as a cabin area. The enclosed area (it is fenced in) is cut yearly by the inhabitants and the area around is used as mountain/alpine summer pasture for local cattle. Bøstølen is a bit further up the valley. The houses, or rather cabins, on this picture are the living units. On the backside (towards the water) each cabin has an old barn house where the cattle slept and was milked. Only a few of these remain standing. Under most of the cabins are a basement of sort used to store milk for production. The stone setting in the middle of the field is an old fireplace used for making cheeze of various types. Near the water is a building used as both a hay storage (as the area here used to be cut for hey) and a boat house. The lake is an excellent fishing spot, but the fishing rights are owned by the land owners.
As a note: this is the youngest of the mountain farms in the area. It was moved here from 2 earlier locations that were both destroyed by avalanches and rock slides during the 1800's. Bøstølen, as a comparison, has been where it is today since mid 1700's after they had to move the cabins onto high ground (also because of avalanches).

Conoces a alguien?
No. La verdad es que no parece demasiado ligero en vivo. Seguramente en la foto parezca más pequeño de lo que es en realidad...
Me alegra que te guste, Merce.

Mi mejor recuerdo de Foncebadón es el refugio hippie donde me alojé. Fue mi primer día de Camino (empecé en Astorga) y mi primera grata experiencia, después de una jornada larga y cansada. Pasamos la tarde cantando canciones populares de todo el mundo y tocando instrumentos a cual más exótico. La chica que atendía el refugio nos dedicó una maravillosa sesión de acordeón. Tocó entre otras una melodía rusa que me quedó grabada en el corazón. Inolvidable.
Wonderful landscape, Juan! I like very much.
All the nice girls in their fantastic costumes, and one boy! A wonderful shot, I like it! Best regards Paul.
