 On the outskirts of the urbanized area of Soajo, at a high point dominated by a large natural granite outcrop, there is a common threshing floor, in the tradition of local communal living, flanked by 24 Galaico-Minho type granaries, characteristic for their low, elongated body and construction in stone, forming a set classified as a Building of Public Interest since 1983. The canes built in lintel, primitive elements of these structures, have completely disappeared. Some show an evident sacralization, evident in the top crosses on plinths, for the divine protection of their contents, essential to the survival of the local community. The chronology of these architectural elements can be included in the 18th and 19th centuries.
