Museum of the Salamancan plains and countryside in Macotera
The natural environment of the Salamancan countryside and prairies suggests a secular dialogue between nature and men. We are placed before a slowly modified landscape that is a remarkable example of environmental sustainability.
By means of different, simple and attractive audiovisual and didactic aids, this museum attempts to demonstrate such a dialogue, our ancestors' intuitive model of sustainability.
On the ground floor, visitors explore the relationship between men and their landscape, while different and rich original pieces of daily life and manufacturing items can be found in the basement, as well as rites and other demonstrations of intangible heritage. An old large traditional winery, together with other large objects such as the imposing painted cart of Macotera, occupy most of the space. Next to them, visitors shall enjoy the delicate items of clothing, pieces of child furniture and shepherding craftwork, weight and measuring kits and religious jewellery.
