    This is more of a Must Taste Tip...

    In Soajo you can see a group of 24 Espigueiros. They belongs everyone, as long as they need. They were designed for storing grain and corn at the proper humidity.

    I choosed them to show you an exemple of Kindeness from the arcuenses- people from Arcos. They have what you can call
    "community spirit"

    Everybody, like I said help eachother when it`s necessary.
