What about a recommendation of a guided visit for free? If you are like our interviewee this month, and love to take a look inside caves, we have the ideal recommendation for you. On Tuesday we recommended several routes to walk or ride (ojo falta link al post de rutas) to enjoy some of the best lakes, rivers, dams …Today we want to propose a guided free visit to one of the several water mines that can be found in the grounds of one of the towns in the Marseme county, and organized for the Museu de Nàutica del Masnou.

This guided visit, which is free and offered in several languages, will allow us to walk along the path of two water mines Cresta and Marlet that was restored back in 1999 and that is just an example of the 27 kilometre long labyrinth made from galleries, running under a town of less than 4 square kilometres. These galleries were dug early in the Eighteenth century, to channel the water that drained through the subsoil to be reused in deposits and washing places.

Several similar water mines were dug along the Maresme county, making the most of its soft ground, to reuse water. Another key factor is the type of soil that can be found on the mountains surrounding the area. Do you want to know more about itDon’t miss this visit!

There is an article where you will find all the information about the water mines in el Masnou, but it is only in Catalan. If you feel confident with the language, you can find the article on this link.
