Transhumance by Made in Slow
Transhumance in Spain is the transferring or moving of sheep by their shepherds from summer to winter pastures, and viceversa. Provoked by the search of the best grasslands and marked by the strong seasonal differences of the Iberian Peninsula. This activity was regulated as long ago as the thirteenth century by King Alphonso X the Wise, who created a sheep-owners’ guild called the Mesta. It continues down to the present day, keeping alive a unique cultural heritage.
The transhumance favors the maintenance of ecosystems of big importance and a multidisciplinary only patrimony. We present to you part of all this wealth and thanks to your support, want to obtain its recovery of a sustainable way and have repercussions on its protagonists.
