Albaola The Sea Factory Of The Basques
The Albaola Basque Maritime Factory is located in the historic port of Pasaia, 3 km from San Sebastian. In this shipyard-museum, you can watch ship carpenters work live, using techniques and technology in danger of disappearing. Visitors can behold the whaling ship San Juan, a wooden craft under construction measuring 28 m in length. This boat was built at Pasajes itself in the 16th century and sank in Labrador (Canada) in 1565. Thanks to a 30-year-long research process, Albaola is now able to construct a replica with the support of UNESCO. Today, we can say that Albaola is a worldwide standard as far as ship heritage is concerned. The tour is available in three languages (Basque, Spanish and French) and is suitable for all ages.
