    Baljenac Island in Croatia, nicknamed Fingerprint Island because of the stone walls built by the inhabitants of neighboring Kaprije Island to protect their crops (grapes, figs, and other fruits) from strong winds.

    Found a short webpage, and a very well phrased paragraph.....
    "Today, the hand-built dry stone walls are protected under UNESCO and serve as a reminder of the times when people had to use their physical strength and resilient spirit to find ways to cultivate crops. It was exactly that hard work and tenacity that enabled them to survive on the harsh, yet beautiful karst landscape of the Adriatic coast."
