Did you know that Metauten
, at 12 kms from Estella-Lizarra
, is home to the first museum in Spain dedicated to the truffle, which is also known as the culinary "black diamond"
? We're referring to the Museo de la Trufa (Truffle Museum)
. If we've aroused your curiosity and you're interested in finding out more about the world of truffles, then come along to these workshops to discover all about collecting this underground fungus which grows naturally in the area, in the shelter of the Sierra de Lóquiz
There will of course be guided tours of the museum
led by experts, activities with truffle-hunting dogs
and of course the tasting
of truffle products. This is a unique opportunity to discover how the landscape, work, culture, geology and climate come together to offer this unique fungus.
It's really hard to resist, isn't it?
