The goal of this campaign is restoring a first horreo in Galicia, close to Ribadeo.

Restoring and preserving the first one, will be a great step in our Project and a big demonstration to other owners of how they could profit their own horreos by preserving them.

What´s Walk & Hórreo?

Stop Hórreos Extinction

An horreo is an elevated wooden construction, created for the preservation and protection of the harvest and food. They are located in the Northern farming regions of Spain.

The major changes in the production made them useless and most of them have been abandoned and neglected, rushing their disappearance as most of the owners can not afford their preservation.

Walk & Hórreo aims to create an infrastructure able to make profitable Horreos.

Giving them new functions

Creating an App, the backpackers of the Camino de Santiago would locate the Horreos and spend the Night in them for a symbolic Price.

This action will provide benefit to the owners from an existing infrastructure that they own but they were not using anymore.

4_About the rewards

Most of rewards are in situ experiences

The sponsors who decide to follow us in this adventure, will get rewards on site, as we want to create a link between you, the horreo and the Carboeiro environment. We aim also to use the full amount of incomes in the Project and avoid producing secondary products that would raise the Price of the campaign. Miguel and Lucia own a company of adventure sports and also they practice Reiki. They will love hosting the sponsors to share with them the great energy of the landscape.

5_What will we do with your contributions?

Two different projects have been plan concerning the amount of incomes we manage to have. It is on the sponsors hands to decide which one will be developed. The full budget will be used on the reconversion and the interior furniture.

General Costs

Execution Costs

If we collect 8.5000,00 euros

That budget would be enough for a basic project of reconversion, and furnish the interior with a bunk bed. The main façade would be a wooden surface with a simple window. It would be a project beautiful by its simplicity

If we collect 12.500,00 euros

This amount would permit us convert the horreo into a landscape viewpoint by the creation of a transparent façade. We would increase the surface to place a double bed.

8_Calendar

The preservation works would be executed during the next three months after closing the campaign. The first month would concern the project design, details, materials, etc. During the second and third month we would go for the execution on site.

As most of the rewards are experiences on site, we have to carefully planify a calendar to organize which day would come each sponsor, it can take almost one year until all the rewards are distributed

    Hola, chicos, me encanta la idea y ya he aportado mi granito de arena para que salga adelante. Aunque no tengo un chavo, me encantaria conoceros algun dia alojandome en esta nueva experiencia. Desde cuando pensais que estará disponible?

    En estos momentos va a haber solamente un hórreo, mas adelante habrá zonas con varios hórreos y si se podrá hacer ese tipo de reserva. De momento lo que podemos organizar son días de acampada en Carboeiro, la finca es muy grande, y organizar actividades para grupos. Si os interesa os podemos personalizar un pack de acuerdo a vuestros gustos, desde número de días a actividades que quisieseis realizar. En contact@nachogias.com podemos organizarlo. Un saludo

    ¿Hay o habrá un solo hórreo? En caso de que hayan más hórreos ... ¿se podrían reservar a la vez para poder ir con hijos o amigos?

    En Galicia están protegidos los que tienen mas de 100 años, no es el caso de este hórreo. Los hórreos protegidos requieren acciones enfocadas a la restauración, nuestro proyecto aspira a preservar otros hórreos que tienen mucho valor pero que no están protegidos. En Asturias el marco legislativo es distinto, allí son bienes muebles y la normativa es muy restrictiva, aunque parece que empiezan a cambiarla puntualmente para permitir este tipo de acciones

    tengo entendido que los horreos están protegidos por patrimonio y hay que tener ciertos permisos y el cambio de la estructura y uso probablemente también tenga impedimentos No?

    Si no se consigue el objetivo no se cobra a ningún mecenas su aportación, es decir, solamente se cobraría en caso de que se consiguiese la financiación y una vez conseguida

    Una vez se termine la campaña se hará un calendario en función de las preferencias de cada mecenas. En caso de solaparse fechas se dará prioridad en función del orden de aportación, es decir, el que antes reservó su noche en Carboeiro tiene prioridad a la hora de elegir fecha en caso de duda.
