In groups or alone, in school age or in any other stage of our lives, we can deal with a visit to Gipuzkoa from an educational point of view. Watching 'in situ' how traditional boats were built, how the Idiazabal cheese is elaborated, or how the old foundries worked with water mills are delicious ways of enjoying while we acquire new knowledge.
The interactive Eureka! Science Museum, the spectacular Aquarium, and the Igartubeiti Farmhouse are worth a visit for those who look for educational tourism. For them, here we suggest some thematic:
