FROM THE HILLSIDE TO THE WORKSHOP
Getaway to the Corklands: Two nights at the rural hotel Posada La Casa Grande, with trips to the cork oak forest and cork craft workshops.
Get to know the ecological and economic importance of cork oak forests and the product they provide: the cork. Visit the forest to see how the bark is stripped from the trees with a guide, then on to a processing plant and finally to two local craft workshops.
