The Foundry

The Foundry is a non-profit residency with three aims: 1. to offer a space for people to work on their projects; 2. to host events organized by members; 3. to increase self-sufficiency and sustainability. The Foundry is not a hotel or tourist destination, but a space of work outside of the institutional confines of market and government funding.

The Foundry occupies an ensemble of old buildings in a valley in rural Galicia at 10 kilometers from the Atlantic coast. Since 2018, we have renovated most of the buildings, grown a food forest and organized many events. We welcome those interested to join us in Spain.

The Foundry is a founding member of the Aldear network, a member of the Commoning Space Network, and the birthplace of FreeingSpace and the Sindicato de la Tierra.
