In this fiesta the residents of Urdazubi/Urdax
commemorate the arrival of iron ore from the mines of Bizkaia at the gates of the Monastery of San Salvador de Urdax
, transported on ox carts. The iron was sent to the monastery forge, where the monks checked it for quality, and then, after the customary haggling, a fair price was agreed on.
Visitors can see a dramatisation of this tradition
and enjoy the market of handicrafts and local produce
, as well as other activities for all members of the public to make the day complete.
