You’d be forgiven for admitting that you’ve never heard of Pedralva. It’s not a place you’d pass through or would be likely to happen upon while touring the Algarve.

The 200 plus inhabitants of this once-thriving agricultural community had long since gone, taking with them the life and soul of this typical Algarvean village. All that remained were seven houses and nine residents, living amid the sad carcasses of the many abandoned stone-built homes.
