The Forest and Earth Fair
Discover what life linked to the Vallgorguina Forest used to be like at the Forest and Earth Fair.
How did they cut firewood when there were no mechanical saws and everything was manual? At the Vallgorguina Forest and Earth Fair, women offer a demonstration on how to cut trunks with a handsaw. Although we might think otherwise, it was the women who were responsible for this task, as they were at home and needed firewood, while the men were working away in the forest. You can also find out about the work of a charcoal maker, woodcutter and cork stripper. The town linked to the forest world has a lot to reveal!
