The hydraulic sawmill
Built around 1890, Larraondo’s hydraulic sawmill took the water from Lasurtegi river. The strength of water would move each of its pieces: two saws, the grinders, the sharpening stone the drill, the mill and the forge. It was 1960 when this machine stopped working, but you can still admire how this old machinery used to work.
Built together with the city council’s building in 1711, it is the only example of a prison from the 18th century still standing in Gipuzkoa. Due to its location, a lot of prisoners condemned to force labour in the mines of Zerain would spend the night there. The hooks and rings used to hold the prisoners can still be seen.
