Agorregi Ironworks and Mill

Standing in the heart of Pagoeta Natural Park, next to the Iturraran homestead, the Agorregi Ironworks and flour mills, plus the infrastructure of reservoirs, dams and canals.

This faithfully reproduces the 18th century iron industry. The earliest records date it to the beginning of the fifteenth century. It was a major ironworks where the iron billets were produced, which were then taken to the minor ironworks where they were forged. The raw materials to produce iron were: iron ore, charcoal and river water. On the other hand, in the mills flour was obtained by grinding wheat and corn grain. Visitors can watch the enormous hammer working as it strikes the metal and the massive bellows that keep the fire going, powered by hydraulic energy. The highly original and effective water tanks at different heights also stand out.
