What we do
Have you heard of Madrid’s Transhumance Festival?
It’s one of Madrid’s most distinctive events. As of 1994, thousands of sheep pass through the city centre on the last Sunday of October to raise awareness of the neglect of drovers roads and bring visibility to the work of transhumant families.
We have been the organisers of this well-known festival since it first began. As of 2017, our very own flock that crosses Madrid on this day – the flock belonging to ’El Concejo de la Mesta’.
On this page you can find out more about the work we do to defend transhumance practices and shepherding.
