"Everybody  needs  beauty  as  well  as  bread,  places  to  play  in  and  pray  in,  where  nature  can  heal  and  bring  strength  to  body  and  soul."

We offer a nourishing space

Hello  and  welcome,  we  are  Basia  and  Bertrand.  Flores  del  Camino  is  our  home  and  it  is  a  work  of  love.  

We  refurbished  this  old  Maragato  house  with  care  and  intention.  We  offer  a  space.  A  space  to  rest  and  enjoy  the  beautiful  surroundings.  A  space  to  reflect  and   look  inwards.   Space  to  explore,  create  and  play.

 

Throughout  the  year  we  also  receive  pilgrims  on  their  way  to  Santiago,  run  retreats and  when  time  permits  make  our  art.  It  is  our  great  honour to live  and  work  and  serve  on  this  Beautiful  Road.  

 

We  collaborate  with  other  retreat  facilitators,  artists,  writers  and  craftsmen  offering  complementary  and  nourishing  offerings.  Retreats  are  suitable  for  beginners  and  for  those  with  no  experience  of  art.  

 

 

Basia  Goodwin  (MA) studied  at  the  Prince's  Foundation  School  of  Traditional  Arts.  Bertrand  Gamrowski  (PhD)  has  an  educational  background  in  mathematics.  Between us we work with a variety of mediums, wood, stained glass, ceramics and make and paint with natural pigments, using  beautiful local  earth  ochers  and  precious  stones. We draw inspiration from nature, exploring pattern and rhythm, form and the formless. We  also  specialise  in  the  use  of  geometry  in  traditional  art  and  philosophy,  especially  the  art  and  architecture  of  the  Camino  and  Northwestern  Spain.  You  can  view  a  sample our art/research here 

 

  With  deep  gratitude  to  Professors  Keith  Critchlow  and  Paul  Merchant  for  planting  seeds  and  inspiring  many.
