The topography of the island and the shepherds’ need to follow their goats through the mountains has led them to invent an alternative means of transportation to overcome obstacles such as large gorges and cliffs. The result was the “shepherd jump”, in which a long wooden spear with metal tip is used. We offer demonstrations and small workshops for groups.
