Malcata, located between Portugal and Spain, it’s a land of transition; a space of encounters and influence but permanently ruled by its isolation. Since the pre Roman era to the present day, settlers have dug these lands in search of its mineral riches and manipulated their watercourses, repelled invasions and used the border to move goods and people.
