Aguas Antiguas

Name of Residency: Eco Frendly Residencies

There are two houses built on various adobe techniques available to receive visitors. A main house underground and a Glamping with two geodesic domes with they’re own kitchen and restroom. Here you can learn about solar energy (because all the infrastructure works with this type of technology, energy for the supply of both houses, water pumps, water heating And automated irrigation systems). We work with plants and open spaces, we have a small space of aromatic, fruit trees, orchard and greenhouse and rainwater storage ponds.We love art, and in the residency program one can develop its own personal art project as well as having a shared art project that includes social events and a documentary about the residency experience.
