Folklore and heritage

Heritage, Arts & Crafts are great exponents of ingenuity in a culture. By meeting those that keep this expertise alive or visiting the places that count for so much in a people’s heritage, we help these regions maintain their unique identity and nature. And, perhaps most importantly, we help encourage younger generations who are taking on those ancestral Arts & Folklore. It is about them being proud of their own traditions and culture.

If Pablo Picasso rings a bell to you then you might know Guernica, one of his best-known works, regarded by many art critics as the most moving and powerful anti-war painting in history…

Guernica, a little town of the basque country, sadly famous for the bombing it suffered during the Spanish civil war, by a coalition of german Nazis and Franco’s fascist troops, is the town we want you to know with Iñaki. He’s a historian specialising in the spanish civil war events and he will bring us some light on those terrible events that happened in the area,weaving connections with history of the art and the general context of the  time.

Flying over Segovia in a hot air balloon is a once in a lifetime experience.

Seriously. Surrounded by the snow capped mountains of the Guadarrama range,and the infinite planes of Castilla, Segovia is unmissable. Ancient court of the kings and world famous for its enormous aqueduct which was elevated more than 2000 years ago by the Roman emperor Trajan, for its Castle that comes straight out of a knights movie and its charming streets of the Jewish quarter the town is a spectacle on its own: But from up there it’s even more impressive. It’s like the whole of History is staring at you in the eyes… Juan, our pilot, in addition to being very talented has made this flight hundreds of times, and knows we can get as close to the city as we could barely touch the roof of the Cathedral. A first class flight over human history.

We want you to meet a very special man.

 He’s a human encyclopedia, a living memory of this region and someone who is very involved in the local community. Francisco Almuiña is a musician, writer, historian, father, husband and the best guide ever. Despite the fact that Francisco is blind, he will describe for you the heart of Galicia and satisfy your curiosity about the region and its mysteries. We will have a walk overlooking the vineyards of Godello grapes in the Ribeira Sacra with him, afterwards he always wants to invite us for lunch with his family in his own house, you will certainly be treated to some old Galician tunes on his Sanfona. Francisco is just like this, generous as a Galician wine.
