LES DONES SÀVIES DE LA MUNTANYA
Les dones sàvies de la muntanya is the prodigious adventure of two herbalists in heroic times
In the middle of the 19th century, many women in the valleys of Vansa and Tuixen (northern Catalonia), undertook long journeys on foot across the Catalan lands. These brave and intrepid women — the herbalists — left the valleys to complement their home economies by selling all kinds of herbs, oils and mountain produce. Those were natural remedies with medicinal properties that only they knew, thanks to their ancestral popular mountain culture.
Guided by Dolors and Sofia, grandmother and granddaughter, we will experience the fascinating adventure of two herbalists across all Catalonia — their hopes and fears, the friendship, love and dangers they faced during their journeys.
