Experience traditional, hand-crafted photogravure printmaking using a modern, non-toxic process
We are located in Galicia, north-western Spain, here. The nearest towns are Monforte de Lemos and Sarria, the nearest cities are Lugo and Ourense.
The regional Galician airports are at Santiago de Compostela and A Coruña, both approx 1.5 hours away. Some European flights serve these airports directly. Otherwise the airport in Madrid serves all international flights. From there one can catch an internal flight to the regional airports. Porto airport in northern Portugal is approx 3 hours away by car and may also be useful.
There are train and bus connections between the airports and our local towns. Car rental from the airports and cities is also available.
We can arrange for regional airport pick-up/drop-off by private car or taxi. This would be an additional cost. Please let us know if you would like more information about this.
Depending on where you are coming from, there are 3 general options to get here:
fly to Madrid airport + fly to regional airport + bus/train/taxi/car hire
fly to Madrid airport + bus/train/taxi/car hire
fly to regional airport + bus/train/taxi/car hire
