Hórreos in Galicia range in size from over 10 meters in length to even as little as one meter in length. These granaries are usually made of granite and are always elevated to ensure rodents are unable to feast on the contents inside.
Today, these buildings are no longer utilised due to advancements in modern agriculture which also means they are no longer being built.
Most older properties in Galicia have an horreo on the land, but sadly many of them are derelict as the owner requires a special permit, at a high cost, to renovate these protected buildings.
