The Agorregi Forge is located within the Pagoeta Nature Reserve, near the town of Aia, in the Basque Province of Gipuzkoa, Spain. It is one of the best preserved examples of a foundry in Gipuzkoa Province. The forge which can be seen today was built in 1754 by the Lord of Laurgain Palace over the ruins of an earlier version. Lying at the bottom of a deep valley near Manterola farmhouse, it used the river's hydraulic energy to power its great bellows and turn its waterwheels.
Famous quotes containing the word forge:
“The childless experts on child raising also bring tears of laughter to my eyes when they say, I love children because theyre so honest. There is not an agent in the CIA or the KGB who knows how to conceal the theft of food, how to fake being asleep, or how to forge a parents signature like a child.”
—Bill Cosby (20th century)
