  • Description


    Gallicant is a historical village abandoned in the '50s. Now we are developing there a sustainable landscape project. We are developing a passive architecture and an organic farming project in a 200ha of land in South of Catalonia.

    The area is well-known form the climbing areas in Siurana and Arbolí. Also, the natural parc of Serra de Montsant is another highly recommended spot to visit in the region.
