Casa do Camião

AN ABANDONED FARM IN PORTUGAL


Casa do Camião is an abandoned farm house in the North of Portugal. The house is built on a hill surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The old truck, used for transporting the fruit to the market, is rusting away in the yard of the farm.

The family that owned the farm sold the land to an agricultural cooperative. That is why the land is still used for farming, but the farm house and barns are abandoned and in a bad state. Some sheds are still in use as storage. Most of the floors in the old farm house are rotten, even parts of the floor collapsed on several places.

There is a small abandoned chapel next to the farm. The chapel is also in a very bad state. The owner has no future plans for the buildings. These photos of Casa do Camião were taken in 2017 on my second Portugal trip. You can see more abandoned houses here.
