What Are These? Camino de Santiago

It's been several days since we noticed these strange little buildings begin to dot the landscape. Some were quite old and rundown, while others appeared to be a newly remodeled backyard feature.

Having way too much morbid imagination, I thought perhaps they were some sort of family crypt. A little research taught me just how wrong I was.

Can you guess what these are?

These small structures are as individual as a fingerprint, and no home seems to be without one.
