The Abandoned Quinta

Whilst out geocaching we came across an abandoned quinta miles from anywhere. Well, not quite abandoned as it seemed that it had been adopted by a local shepherd or goatherd although neither he nor his sheep were anywhere to be seen.

There are several murals around the building which he must have painted. Also there is a precarious looking home made “totem pole” that the shepherd presumably climbs to locate lost animals.

An example of Portuguese wiring - hardly surprising the place has been abandoned!
