Sara Sherwood

Posted on February 15, 2015 at 2:50 PM

In 2014, we came across a "city scape" painting by Sara Sherwood and were fascinated by it. We were very lucky to finally meet her and have the chance to show her Dezanove House. Sara is a wonderful artist and we believe her paintings are very special. During her stay she was inspired by Castro de Barona and other Galician sites and she has shared with us her new painting of NY where she fusioned the city with an island monastery. We also want to share it with you all. Thank you Sara

A new concept restaurant

Posted on January 24, 2015 at 8:10 AM

Who would have thought that canned food could come into fashion?! If you are in London or NY watch out for Tincan. These architects have managed to bring canned food to a new level in a kitchen-less waste-less successful restaurant. We have ourselves mixed mussel-producing tradition and architecture, but we must say that when it comes to seafood, we’d rather have the real thing while enjoying the sea breeze. In any case, well done for an innovative concept.

Galician Music - Celt Connection

We have always been intrigued with the Galician Celt connection. We keep hearing about DNA studies and Galicia as the 7th Celt nation, with the others being Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Cornwall, Isle of Mann and Brittany.

We don’t know for sure how much of this is true, but as music lovers, we do believe that music carries a strong historical legacy…. and Bagpipes don’t lie. So check out Carlos Nunez new album and tell us what you think. He is performing this Wednesday in Scotland, next week in Austria and then on Tour in the US.

 

Here is a link to one of his songs that was in the soundtrack of Mar Adentro (The Sea Inside) from Amenabar. The film is based on a real story and filmed in Rias Baixas. One of the main characters, Ramona Castro lives in Riberiña, so when you come to Dezanove House and have a walk around the village you might come across her and she is always happy to talk about the true story!. Here is the soundtrack. Enjoy the Celt music connection!
