Traditional beehives made out of cork

Posted by

When in Portugal you will find me walking, cooking, photographing, reading and of course blogging. In England it is pretty much the same with the addition of catching up with family, friends and organising a festival.

    1. Hi
      There’s always a beekeeper at Olhão’s Saturday markets located almost in the middle looking towards the town. He’d probably know if not I’d head for the village where we saw these. Somebody there am sure could help. Good luck! And do let me know how you get on.

        1. Hi Tabitha we saw them in the hamlet of Funchosa de Cima, up in the hills. They were abandoned so i am sure if you spoke to the farmer he would allow you to take them for a small fee.
