Pillars of the earth

By Joao_Lopes  
We are living dark moments, ghost's from a very recent past are, once again, coming out to haunt our lives. Hope is pillar that holds up the world, we just have to overpass it and learn to live again.

Espigueiros means spikes in English. These granaries are supported on granite slabs from the Peneda mountains, not far from Soajo. They were built off the ground to protect food crops from rats and other rodents and were used by the whole community. The oldest espigueiros date back to 1782. Today, 24 still remain intact, and some are still used to store grain, especially corn.

Espigueiros do Soajo, Portugal.
