Sandra sent this photo of some Portuguese houses – called Palheiros – found in Costa Nova, on the coast of Portgual.


Palheiros were originally constructed by fisherman. If you read Portuguese (or don’t mind Google Translate) you can read more about them here.

If you like taking photos, don’t forget to share them in our Picture Postcards photo group. December’s photo theme is houses.
