    Espigueiros do Soajo

    Soajo, Portugal

    Espigueiros do Soajo

    A cluster of granite granaries perched on stilts.




    Set on the periphery of the beautiful Peneda-Gerês National Park in Portugal is the traditional village of Soajo. Its quaint houses and small church create a charming picture, but it is best known for its impressive espigueiros: granite granaries built above the ground.




    Espigueiros means “spikes,” and these granaries are supported on granite slabs from the Peneda mountains. 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, and the whole cluster was constructed between the 18th and 19th centuries. Of the 24 that remain today, some are still used today to store grain, especially corn.


    You can also find these typical granaries in the village of Lindoso, just 6 miles (10 kilometers) from Soajo. There are more than 50, still used today to store grain gathered by the locals.
