“TRANSHUMANT TRACKS, TRANSHUMANCE IN SPAIN” is a documentary serial, which objective is to show the present of one of the most important and significant, social, economic and cultural phenomenon of Spanish history.

Transhumance is the movement of livestock in geographical distant zones, searching for a rational use of pastures. These seasonal movements take place from cold areas, where they stay during Summer, to warmer zones to spend Winter. So, it is an imitation of migratory movements that exist in nature and that each year moves thousands of animals looking for the most suitable place and climate.

In Spain this activity is fulfilled with seasonal punctuality. During Autumn, different flocks go to sheltered Winter zones of Andalucía and Extremadura and, in the last days of Spring they go back to the mountains of the North plateau.

According to lifestyle of cowherds, shepherds and their herds, we cross these routes, almost unadulterated, in constant dialogue with Nature, that encloses this pastoral activity.

La serie documental "HUELLAS TRASHUMANTES, TRASHUMANCIA EN ESPAÑA" plantea un viaje de ida y vuelta, por diez itinerarios distintos, conviviendo con pastores que trashuman con distintas cabañas ganaderas: vacuno, ovino, de lidia, caprino y caballar. Una forma de acercarnos a la compleja realidad de los hombres y mujeres trashumantes, y recorrer las cañadas, veredas y cordeles, la Red de Vías Pecuarias que tamiza toda la Península conectando espacios naturales de una gran diversidad biológica.

Al ritmo de los rebaños, que aún huellan la nieve o el polvo de las cañadas, nos adentramos en estas rutas y en las vidas que las pueblan, en un diálogo constante con la naturaleza que rodea esta actividad ancestral.
