Old wells

Dotted around the landscape are circular stone or brick-built structures with domed roofs. At further investigation, they turn out to be wells. Their location is determined where the spring rises, rather than where is convenient and so they are often located in the middle of fields, along a deserted track, or beneath a tree.

5 to remember
un pozo – a well
circular – circular
una estructura – a structure
abovedado/a – domed
un techo – a roof
