Every Saturday (apart from the winter months) the Electricity Museum offers the Path of Engolasters hydroelectric, a tour of the production of electricity in which you will visit the workings of the Engolasters Lake dam, you will walk on the channels that take the water from the river and you will see the secrets of electricity production. Furthermore, you will be able to see how they formerly brought in the material and people to the guard huts on the dam, and you can get on the carriage that was in service from 1930 to 1999!
