Igartubeiti is a medieval hamlet that represents the Golden Age of this type of house grouping. Its architectural restoration has been completed, and attempts to recreate the conditions and the environment of real life in the times that this hamlet acquired its full historical identity, in other words, around 1630. The intention was to make the reproduction as authentic as possible, fro the linen sheets to the arguizaolas, typical candles manufactures in Basque hamlets, or baserris. There has also been an attempt to restore the huge press, with the intention of starting to produce cider once more.
Currently, the hamlet allows visitors to understand the functioning of a cider press house made of beams, typical of the 16th century, and compare it to the remains of this type of machine that have been preserved in other hamlets.
Its objective is to provide the visitor with complementary information to what has been learned during the tour of the hamlet itself, in addition to offering a series of other services for clients. This centre includes an exhibit area with an audio-visual space, destined for showing the archaeological remains within the evolution cycle of the hamlet. The same space presents details about the restoration, the building specifications for the different ages of the hamlet, its daily life and the social history of the hamlet and its surroundings.
