  • Description


    We are one of the oldest community projects in Europe, started in early 80's. It's a big country house made of stone, situated in the middle of olive trees fields. We live together people of many ages and different stories, trying to create a different kind of society, more peaceful, more inclusive. We based our decisions, our communications, and our sense of tribe on meeting in the circle our sacred space, and celebrating together fool moon.
