Thinking about this, I reckon there are a lot of odd places but it often takes an outsider's eye to point out the peculiarity of that thing you walk past every day.How do you keep finding these bizarre places? There seem to be a ton of them in Portugal. I'm sure if you went wandering around Britain, you'd just find abandoned barns, schools etc which look much less interesting.
Yeah it says witchcraft and/or satanism to me. Unless... this town and nearby Obidos are associated with queens of Portugal, maybe the wires are supposed to be invisible and it is a queen ascending in religious ecstasy.That monument on the roundabout looks like an anti witch statue to me, she's being broken on the wheel.
Definitely not unique to Portugal... I reckon most if not all of Europe has at least some similar bits, though of course some more than others. I bet there are loads of fascinating overgrown castles and so on in Hungary, Romania etc etcare all these good abandon bits unique to Portugal or is this a european thing?
Weve got abandon parts states side but seemingly not as robust as what youve been post
Perfect example is that creepy statue - we drove past it several times with no-one paying any attention to it at all and I resolved to take a picture before I left. So today I parked nearby and we walked up and crossed to the middle and took a picture... and some local walking by saw us and obviously thought "oh yeah, that is a bit odd" and then walked there too and took his own picture. Classic case of "monkey see monkey do".Thinking about this, I reckon there are a lot of odd places but it often takes an outsider's eye to point out the peculiarity of that thing you walk past every day.
