Royal Factory of Arms and Munitions of Orbaizeta
In the Aezkoa valley, 5 kilometres from the French border, are the ruins of the Royal Factory of Arms and Munitions of Orbaizeta
The ruins have been overgrown by vegetation and extensive restoration work needs to be done below the green plant cover. The enigmatic air of the place and the fact that it is an excellent example of 18th-century industrial architecture have led to the factory being declared a Site of Cultural Interest.
