Herders of the Mist
Original title Pastores de la niebla
Amid the mists and alongside the Cantabrian Sea rises the Picos de Europa (Peaks of Europe), the first National Park to be created in Spain. This is protected landscape, shaped by herders and their herds. The Park is a paradigm of what is happening also in other mountains: the few herders who still inhabit the folds feel themselves to be an endangered species. In the twilight of this thousand-year-old culture, experiments are being carried out with herder schools and cheeseries that are compatible with the environment. An attempt is being made to preserve this generational substitution, the countryside and its biodiversity, the indigenous breeds and livestock breeding linked to a unique cheese,”Gamonéu del Puerto”.
