Sistelo is famous for its 'solcalcos', which arose by the need to increase the agricultural area and to counter the slopes. These structures allowed the development of subsistence agriculture of extremely importance for the survival of rural communities. You can see the 'espigueiros', a kind of granaries were built to dry the big corn crop which was introduced in the s. XVII.
