Xerolithies - Dry stone walls

The dry stone walls that are built all over the island and stabilize for centuries the terraces are under threat! The fields are abandoned with no use anymore for cultivation and their walls are falling  down because there is no one there to fix them. There was a rule that the neighbor from above is responsible for fixing the stone walls underneath. So here we are fixing our stone walls at the borders with the neighbor which were down for the last 4 decades!

Pergolas in the small house
