The identity of a town is directly linked to its own territory, as its physical condition has shaped the way of living of its inhabitants, as well as their social organization and cultural, political, and economic activities.
We strongly believe that we need to strengthen such identity so to avoid its loss. Of course, we are always aware of the social changes as the time passes on.
But, how can we strengthen the identity of a town in its own territory? Well, that’s easy: by recognizing its cultural and natural heritage, through the employment of ethnographic and landscaping elements, so we will be able to make it more powerful and well organized.
Xesta’s parish in A Lama city council includes a large network of river mills throughout its towns. This is a fantastic example on how man was able to harmoniously adapt the territory’s conditions to nature, by modifying and shaping it.
All this stone, vegetation and water sound landscape inspired us to begin this ethnographic inventory and the ability to strengthen the identity of a town.
