The House of Fire

The House of Fire

The fire, from the Latin focus is the home, the center of the Mapuche ruca. Heat in movement, symbol of the energy that shoots beyond the walls. Centripetally, like a spiral galaxy, persevere in itself, there is a fire in the galaxy, the galaxy is the entrance to the home.

La Casa del Fuego was expanded in 2017 to give space to the new generations of the family, creating a new wing to house the kitchen and the service pavilion.
