Abandoned Pigeon Houses

In the vast plains of northern Castile many people left their villages. Sometimes more than half of a village is abandoned and the houses made of mud bricks are coming down.

"Felices Fiestas" sounds really strange in face of these ruins.

Especially interesting are the old pigeon houses. Over centuries they provided a second income for the families, now they are returning to the mud they were once build of.

Abandoned but still intact pigeon house in the plains of Castile.

Ruins of a pigeon house inside a village.
