Matavenero y Poibueno

A 1000 metros de altitud, en un mágico valle del Bierzo, nos encontramos la aldea de Matavenero, un lugar donde desde hace tiempo mujeres y hombres tratan de vivir en armonía con el entorno natural.

Motivados por la energía del movimiento Rainbow , fue aquí, entre las ruinas de un pueblo abandonado hacía treinta años, donde los primeros repobladores sembraron las semillas de un sueño de comunidad y convivencia. Mucho ha cambiado el pueblo desde aquel septiembre del 89 donde aquellos habitantes se preparaban para sobrevivir el duro y desconocido invierno en sus tipis.
