Albaola The Sea Factory of the Basques

  Albaola lanean Albaola The Sea Factory of the Basques

ALBAOLA THE SEA FACTORY OF THE BASQUES is located at the entrance of the Bay of Pasaia (Gipuzkoa), close to the ancient steam dredger Jazikibel and situated in a renovated shipyard.

In this magical and hidden place the ship writing carpenters repair and build boats with high historic and ethnographic value.

Albaola factory evokes many sea odysseys lived by the Basque people along the New World trough the whale hunters and their vessels. More than a museum, this factory is an imaginative and open space where you can learn, thanks to a dynamic process, the sea history of the Basques watching the public construction of the replica of one of its most famous ships: XVIth century whale ship SAN JUAN.

You can visit the whaling ship construction process here, in the Basque sea factory, it's dynamic and it develops over time to the rhythm of its constructive stages inside a big shed where the big structure pieces are finally assembled.

All this process is set in a permanent exhibition based on the whaling and the sea activity of the Basques during the 16th century.

ALBAOLA completes your tourism experience inviting you to navigate along the bay of Pasaia: the access to the museum can be made by the sea thanks to a maritime transport service located at "Muelle del Hospitalillo". You can park your car at the free parking of Trintxerpe situated on the same wharf and you can board on this green boat where an exciting tour will start.
