- The first few days will consist of presentations on the Camino and its architectural treasures. We will focus in particular on the mid-13th c. Gothic Cathedral of León. You will explore the beautiful forms of León carvings through a practical exploration of their hidden, visible and symbolic geometry.
- After visiting the Cathedral you will be guided by Nick Durnan (stonemason and sculptor specialising in medieval art, with 40 years experience working in English Cathedrals). You will learn to carve some of the designs yourself.
- This will also be your opportunity to spend some quiet time in nature on the Camino de Santiago. Go for walks. Enjoy home - cooked meals under the pergola. Share with others and enjoy the quiet of the starlit Milky Way.
