Fotografía. Arquitectura popular. Asturias. Hórreo. Landscapes of Spain. Ethnography. Architecture. Hórreo ( barn)


Dia de lluvia, al lado de la carretera, se dibuja la silueta de un hórreo.


An hórreo is a typical granary from the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula (mainly Galicia, Asturias and Northern Portugal), built in wood or stone, raised from the ground by pillars (pegollos in Asturian, esteos in Galician, abearriak in Basque) ending in flat staddle stones (vira-ratos in Galician, mueles or tornarratas in Asturian, or zubiluzea in Basque) to avoid the access of rodents. Ventilation is allowed by the slits in its walls. Similar buildings (barns) on staddle stones are found in Southern England.
