Baco Festum: a journey to the roots - Youth Exchange in 2023


This Erasmus+ project takes place in the summer of 2023 in Carucedo (El Bierzo), where we brought together participants from six countries to celebrate the cultural diversity through learning and discovering the history of the romanization and the wine culture of El Bierzo and Valdeorras.


For whom?

This youth exchange brings together 36 young people from six different countries: Spain, Estonia, Georgia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Hungary and Turkey (5 participants + group leader).


The objective is to assess the cultural diversity and the historical heritage about Romanization and its legacy, as well as the wine culture of Valdeorras and El Bierzo.

Where and when?

The project takes place in the town of Carucedo, next to the gold mines of Las Médulas, during 8 days (06/04-06/12 of 2023).

The team

The coordinators of this project are Lucas Docampo and Alexandra Galkina.

Youthpass certificate

Proof of your participation

By being part of this project, you will receive the YouthPass Diploma: a non-formal education certificate recognized throughout Europe that allows you to describe what you have done and learned. Plus, it can be a great way to stand out at a job interview, going to college, or to show off to your friends!

This is my first Erasmus+ and I couldn't be more delighted with all the team behind it, with the passion they put into the projects and how included they make all the people who participate.
