Basia Goodwin (MA) studied at the Prince's Foundation School of Traditional Arts. Bertrand Gamrowski (PhD) has an educational background in mathematics. We specialise in the use of geometry in traditional art and philosophy, especially the art and architecture of the Camino and Northwestern Spain. Flores del Camino is our home and it is a work of love. Throughout the year we receive pilgrims on their way to Santiago, run retreats and when time permits make our art. It is our great honour to live, work and serve on this beautiful road.
