It is a journey back in time during which we immerse ourselves in sacred places, archaeological sites, traditional villages and try to understand the profound meaning of centuries-old practices and rituals handed down from generation to generation. This type of experience offers the opportunity to appreciate the heritage that our ancestors have left us and to rediscover the link between history and culture with a territory.
