We will carry the work needed for the visitors to be able to easily walk around the site . Daily work will include cleaning up the archaeological area and the path, removing the dead brushwood and make all the area look clean and pretty.
Also, part of the tasks will be helping to organise the San Lourenzo festival on the top of the hillfort. It is a traditional festival which had been lost and recovered a few years ago. All the community gets involved so you will be working hand in hand with locals and who knows, if you have any special skill you may perform something during the festival.
We want you to be confortable after work, so we have prepared a confie accommodation at the local sports center with bunk beds. To sleep bedding is provided (sleeping bag or sheets).
We also need you strong so all the meals will take place at local restaurants. You will get to know Galician culinary, one of the things we are well-known.
Whileas your work is happening, archaeological dig may be taking place, so you will know first hand how archaeologists work. The team will be there to explain how they work, how they record data and so on. However they are digging or not while you are there, archaeological workshops will take place, so you will know all about the site and how archaeology works.
Besides archeology, we have prepared loads of fun for you. You will get to know very closely the territory through the tours we have prepared. You will visit other sites, palaces, natural attractions, traditional wineries and you will even walk a small part of the famous Camino de Santiago.
