Volunteering in Doña Teresa Spain
Doña Teresa – La Alberca
The Doña Teresa venue is located in the town of La Alberca, well known for its traditions and customs that date back to the 15th Century. It was also the first village in Spain to be declared a National Heritage Site in 1940. The medieval village still preserves its architecture, especially in the town center. You can also find expert blacksmiths and traditional artisans who, still to this day, excel at special crafts such as embroidery, woodwork, ceramics, and iron work. La Alberca is located only 70 km from Salamanca with a population of a little less than 1,200 and attracts tourists from all over.
