  • The Cades forge is located in the beautiful village, Cantabria Herrerias.ha been masterfully restored. We know that you started at the beginning of the century xviiiy was just completed in 1752. It is a typical construction for all kinds of agricultural tools and also for branding the hooves of cows, bulls and other animals. Another annex building is the mill that the water of the river Nansa cogia and puts back it in the river bed through an ingenious system of drainage.

  • Had not planned to visit the Cades forge, but what a pleasant surprise. A site very recommendable, impressive demonstration of the foundry and the mill. Super guides with clear, readable and complete explanation. We have learned what is a goa!. Incredible story behind these places and its relationship with Spanish industrialisation.

  • Recommended to visit, especially with children. I recommend not to make the visit for free, is much better to take the entrance for the guided visit since they put the old Foundry machinery in movement and also the mill. Especially highlight the attention of 3 guides who have been very kind.

  • A brilliant restoration of a water-powered ironworks and corn mill. Fully operational demos of water-powered bellows and forge, then the water-powered hammer, followed by a working corn mill.
  • GOOD explanation, guided, perhaps rather high price for the little that lasts. Site well signposted road, beautiful models and explanations, well-preserved and very educational. Congratulations

  • All a discovery. It is an ancient blacksmithy where you can see live as iron ore was mined and how it worked: all the machinery is put into operation with a mill; the visit also includes visits to the mill where there is also a real demonstration: very interesting for adults and small; very friendly staff; beautiful environment.
