Have you ever wanted to be part of something unique and different? Or fancied escaping from your routine and experiencing a more beautiful and fulfilling lifestyle? How about visiting a lush world full of enchantment and wonder?
Martyn Thompson – Landscape Photography together with the Agave School (Pita Escuela) offer you a fantastic value two day experience in the photographer’s paradise of Los Molinos del Río Aguas, a unique oasis of wonder in Paraje Natural Karst en Yesos de Sorbas in the Province of Almería where you can do ALL of the above!
Combining photography with an overnight visit to this picturesque valley, you will not only get to explore and photograph this area of outstanding beauty but will learn about and possibly take part in the activities of the Agave School, our home during this experience.
The Agave School is an environmental and cultural association founded in 2008 by German artist Timbé who first came to Los Molinos del Río Aguas in 1993. Timbé has now adopted the research into the uses of agave plants as a way of life and uniquely specialises in giving new life to the agave wood.
The Andalucían land-house which is host to the Agave School, is a good model for self-sustainability and comfort. The 2Kw of solar power, river water supply and eco-futons in all the rooms are all adapted to a respectful lifestyle and without compromise. This is a house that is truly “off grid” where you CAN use a hairdryer!

The valley around Los Molinos del Río Aguas is fairly unique; an oasis of wonder in the Paraje Natural Karst en Yesos de Sorbas. Without the spring waters which originate not far up the ravine from the village of Sorbas, Los Molinos del Río Aguas probably wouldn’t have come into being. Rainwater percolates down through the gypsum rock beds into underground pools from which it finds it way to the surface at the lowest point in the ravine. The bamboo cane along with many other species of succulent plant, thrives along the ravine floor where the spring water flows to it’s destination, the sea at Mojacar.
