Recovery of ancient roads and discovery of the Valley of Siarb (Llagunes)
Description: Vall de Siarb is a very unique and interesting valley in the heart of the Pyrenees. The purpose of this workcamp is to recover and maintain the ancient paths of the valley as they are part of the history and the natural beauty of the place. These paths were used during many centuries until the 1960s-70s. They represent a huge heritage, which is why we want to keep them in the valley as an open-air museum. During the workcamp, participants will discover the surroundings of the Valley of Siarb, they will get to know the geographical features of the Parc de l'Alt Pirineu and will learn more about the region of Pallars Sobirà and its idiosyncrasies.
Type of Work: There will be all kinds of tasks regarding the recovering and improving of old paths: clearing paths, rebuilding dry stone walls, putting stones aside, improving trail signs by painting them and redoing pavement stretches of trails. We will spend all the working hours (4 hours) in the nature, surrounded by forests, fields, etc. The work is very manual and physical.
Accommodation: The accommodation has several rooms: 3 double rooms and two large rooms with 5 and 6 beds each. There is a dining room with a fireplace that will be used for meals. The kitchen is fully equipped and the food will normally be cooked using ingredients grown in the garden of the refuge. The bathroom is shared and has two showers, two sinks and two toilets. There is a common room where we will do various activities. The room will be accessible during free time as well.
