Los Horcones is a community comprised of people interested in preventing and trying to find solutions to social problems in our contemporary world. The lifestyle lived by those in the community is based on the principles of cooperation, equality, non-violence, solidarity and respect as well as appreciation of the environment.
When the founders of Los Horcones realised that behavioural psychology, when correctly applied to education, could lead to children acquiring new habits and ways of experiencing the world, they decided to use the potential of this field of enquiry and apply it as a science to generate solutions to the problems we, as humans, share. In 1973, the community was consequently established and has since served as a place where freedom of thought, creativity, and respect and tolerance for life can flourish. Special focus is placed on progressing towards self-sufficiency and working together with children of disabilities, particularly those with autism, in our specialised centre for young people.
Visitors are welcome between October-March, preferably during the week.
