‘Urumea, river of cider’ is a project that recreates how goods used to be transported from Astigarraga to San Sebastián/Donostia along the river Urumea. These goods obviously included the cider made at the Astigarraga cider house.
Barrels of cider, fruit and other goods were loaded on rafts at the jetties that Lizeaga and Petritegi owned on the river Urumea to be carried to San Sebastián/Donostia. On arrival, these goods were loaded onto ox carts and distributed around the city.
This project initiated by the Lizeaga and Petritegi cider houses aims to recover and share this custom, in order to safeguard a very special part of our culture.
