At Forest Soul Gathering location, we are realizing a project, near the Barragem do Alto Rabagão (Alto Rabagão Dam) in Lama da Missa, Montalegre.
This project is all about creating a space of exchange. We want to share knowledge, perspectives and ways of living. It will open this summer as a spot where you can connect with the local nature, living in a more eco way, with a lot of activities from horse riding to kayaking, yoga classes to group meditation sessions, spiritual retreats to permaculture internships…Nature has been the center and the energy of all our projects.
But there’s more to it, Barroso region is a zone which was densely populated by the Pre-Celtic Tribes for a long time and has a lot of cultural and physical remains from them like castles, defense walls and “Castros”. Barroso is also designed by FAO as a World Agricultural Heritage Zone. Besides all this, we are also one of the zones where the most renewable energies are produced in Portugal, both solar, wind and hydro. With one of the biggest artificial lakes in Portugal, Alto Rabagão takes a big role in energy production and wildfires management.
