In 2013, I found this abandoned village, doing a short hiking trip in the area of Broto (Aragon), particularly the Pelopin peak. It is a beautiful area next to Ordesa National Park, in the middle of Pyrenees mountains.
First time I saw this village, I felt something strange: my heart start pumping blood with high speed and something in my head telling me to go there. I decided to have a look, from distance seems to be just another abandoned village like many others in the region. Ruined houses, vegetation, cow’s kingdom, so nothing really interesting.
But then I decided to stay a bit longer in a small in a clear cattle pasture near to the entrance of the village. After few moments I felt a strong energy around me, like a shield, protecting me. And something telling me that I need to know more about the place.
Never in my life felt something like this.
So I was consider it just as pass over thought in my mind and didn’t pay attention too much. I had to go back home, I wasn’t prepared to stay there during the night.
Every time I returned to this village, I felt the same and every time I was more attracted by the village’s energy.
So after some nights spent under the stars in that village, in the end the idea came into my mind: this village will be my retirement, my dream, my last years living on this planet. And will do all possible to convert, renovate, build something there that can be a way of living in peace, far from crazy “civilized society”.
