The Transhumance Festival has once again filled the streets of Madrid with shepherds, sheep and goats, a traditional event that since 1994 has claimed the role of transhumance and extensive livestock farming as an essential tool for the conservation of biodiversity and as a fight against change climate. In this edition, due to the works that are being carried out in the Puerta del Sol, it has been the first time that the parade has crossed the Plaza Mayor.
The Casa de Campo has offered a program of free activities on October 21 and 22 aimed at both families and adults.
