Photographer's Note

I found quite a few of these solid stone houses on the outskirts of Soajo and yes people were living in them.

The Vila of Soajo is located inside the boundaries of Portugal's only national park (Parque Nacional Peneda-Geres), in the mountains of the Serra de Soajo 1,416m. The Park has an area of 702.90 km², 52.75 km² of which is public property, 194.38 km² is private property, and the remaining 455.77 km² are commons. Jurisdictionally, Soajo belongs to the County of Arcos de Valdevez, approximately 20km to the West, and to the District of Viana do Castelo, which is 60km to the West. The City of Viana do Castelo, the capital of the district, is Portugal's northern-most port city the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Soajo is located in the Viana district's mountainous area of Alto Minho. Bordering Soajo to East is the Ourense, Galicia (Spain) district. Soajo is one of the main points of entry into Portugal, separated by the River Castro Laboreiro.
