Alminhas - Estrada Velha - Portugal

Alminhas (Little Souls) - Granite stones sculpted into cross-shapes by roadsides since we Portuguese can remember. Legend has it that they were refuges for travelers as protection from storms and robbers.


"Alminhas"...esculturas em granito de que nós Portugueses nos lembramos desde que nos conhecemos. As lendas contam que estas eram refúgios para os viandantes  contra tempestades e malfeitores de estrada.
