Rough land

The landscape in Serra d'Aires e Candeeiros Natural Park, in Central Portugal, is rough and barren. It was not an easy place to live in, just a few decades ago. The local population strived to survive raising cattle and growing cereal crops. Small rock fences can be found everywhere, some still being used to hold sheep or cows. The old windmills are abandoned, though, crowning the otherwise bare mountain tops.
