Welcome to Vale das Lobas

Well-Being, Discovery, Biodiversity




A place with clean air, natural springs, and traditional farming, where the only sounds to break your meditation are the trickling of water and the buzzing of bees.

An ancient valley with sacred sites from the neolithic era – full of the power of wild nature, where the connection between humanity and nature is still intact, as is the unbroken link to ancestral wisdom.

A place which subtly supports your reconnection with yourself and with nature.

Just being here is revitalising, remembering that we are one with nature

Vale das Lobas is leading towards sustainable life on Earth.

Water and the vortex turbine | part one
