Who was
DON VASCO?

Who was Don Vasco?

Meet Don Vasco of Quiroga, the humanist who believed that Utopia was possible and constructed a universe by combining the new world with the old. The man who created a common future for the mixed race. This upholder of justice, the visionary, the tireless worker. The bishop who deserved the greatest honour: to be remembered as Tata Vasco.

HAS ARRIVED

The World of Utopia, has arrived

Chapels against picturebook skies depicted with the native brush. An artistic rush from the craftsman’s hand. Ancestral rituals, candles and flowers at night which accompany those who are no longer here. Two worlds which merge on the palate. They dance and celebrate to the sound of the Pirekua. This is the Utopian World.
