These crumbling farm buildings are understood to mark the last remnants of Aldeia de Broas, a ghost town in Mafra, a municipality in the Lisbon District on the west coast of Portugal. According the Wikipedia, the lost community had been inhabited for centuries but became a ghost town in the 1960s when its last resident died. Judging by the photograph, the years have clearly not been kind.

Atmospheric as the above photograph is, Google Earth offers a more comprehensive glimpse back in time, as the ruins of the old village can clearly be seen from above.
