Learn traditions and ancestral jobs.
Come meet the town that has enchanted more than one craftsman, which have chosen this place so far from civilization in the Natural Park of Cadí-Moixeró to ﬁnd their inspiration.
It was on 1978 when a small group of artisans discovered Ossera, and they settled, managing to revive and give new sap to a town that was disappearing little by little. The illusion of a new way of life has helped them compensate for the obstacles that have been appearing along the way.
The small nucleus of houses of the valley of the Vansa, at 1,250 meters of altitude and almost in ruins was ﬁlled with young idealists all with a common motive: to give priority to the important things, those that cannot be bought with money.
Come meet this town away from civilization and let yourself be seduced by a diff erent way of living.
