With the aim of showcasing elements of the traditional culture that make up our identity, the INCM, in partnership with the National Museum of Ethnology, has created the series of collection coins entitled "Portuguese Ethnography".
The sixth and final coin in this series, created by sculptors Isabel Carriço and Fernando Branco, features the Granaries in the North-east of the Iberian Peninsula, ingenious popular buildings made of stone and wood related to the culture of milling, designed to store and protect cereals from animal predators and the weather.
The set of stone granaries existing in Lindoso and Soajo, along with other important groups, are a magnificent example of these ancestral works of art.
