Terra Galaica is a primeval land, where the stones speak, telling us about their ancient history. A land where its waters, its forests and its tradition keep alive the knowledge and teachings of yesteryear. A land where a powerful telluric energy resides and connects it to other enclaves around the planet that have attracted people over time.

We will dive into the most strategic points of ancestral Galicia, giving voice to its visible and invisible landscapes. We will travel together through its legends, its myths, its grove, its Atlantic and thermal waters, its gastronomy, its ara solis and places with a strong symbolic and ritualistic charge.

We will invite you through the door ”Beyond The Way", to show you its original roots, thus taking you to a reality impregnated with neolithic memories, enjoying the nature that surrounds us and bathing in medicinal waters that will give us relaxation, energy and well-being.

We wil visit sacred spaces full of magic and we will connect with the energy and information that resides in Mother Earth, accessing her knowledge from the hand of the guardians of the place, with a different staging and through experiences and stories every step of the way.
