Luberri. Geological Interpretation Centre

Ética Turística de Euskadi

The Luberri Geological Interpretation Centre offers a unique chance to find the geological and paleontological wealth located in the valley of Oiartzun. The foundation is situated within the Oarsoaldea region, in the Aiako Harria Natural Park. The centre arranges an unusual journey in time throughout the last 1 billion years. Thanks to it we will discover the geological history of our lands.

 

Luberri consists of several thematic spaces and 40 showcases in which the visitors will be able to admire fossils, minerals and a wide range of geological materials from Gipuzkoa and many areas of the Basque geography. Exhibition panels are available in Spanish, Basque and French to provide the visitors with the information about the characteristics, origins and the place where the elements were found.

 

"Roca, Mineral y Fósil" area intends to show the main rudiments of geology, types of fossils, minerals and rocks that can be found in our lands, among many other subjects. Furthermore, the area called "Historia geológica de Euskal Herria" enables to go deep into our mountains' evolution throughout the past 500 million years. To come across the most ancient settlers of Gipuzkoa, the most important fossils of different periods of the geological era and the granitic batolito (the only structure of this type in our geography) enter the area named Oiartzun. The museum also provides a zone that focuses on the recent finds.

 

Likewise, Luberri consists of a small workshop-laboratory where those who visit it will have the possibility to observe the way the experts of the museum work.
