ZerainMuseums And Performances

Price Tax Included: Adults: 6.50€, Young People 5-14 years old 4.00€
Duration: 1h 30'


In the XI century, the exploitation of iron began and continued for centuries in the 150 hectares of the Aizpea mine. Thanks to this, a special landscape has been formed in the surrounding areas: THE IRON LANS.
This mine is vitally important for understanding the Basque mining tradition, for in a small, secluded area, we can understand how the mine was worked ( quarries and galleries), we shall find the means of transport (the inclined planes, the rails, the rack railways, the cables, etc), the spectacular calcinations furnaces and also multiple traces typical of the profession (powder kegs, repair workshops, canteens, offices, artificial cisterns, etc)
