Abandoned homes left to rot – Loulé, Algarve, Portugal

In Algarve on January 21, 2015 by cubsur51 Tagged: , ,

Sights similar to these can be seen in almost every town in the Algarve region, possibly in Portugal. Whole streets of abandoned homes are simply falling into ruin, in this case right in the centre of town. You can see by the modern aluminium doors that these homes have only been recently abandoned. Once a roof tile comes loose or a crack appears, the deterioration is very rapid. Click the image to see full size.

These little houses are no longer popular, being very small and having no garden and no parking space except in the street. The law does not permit their demolition until they become a danger to citizens.
