In the summer gold we look for the river
The Gold Interpretation Center of the Segre de Balaguer organizes again during the months of July and August the activity "In summer we look for gold in the river", a unique, exciting and very fun proposal that invites visitors to live during a time as authentic gold prospectors of the Segre in an incomparable environment.
The activity, which lasts approximately 2 hours, consists of a gold search workshop in the Segre river bed, just in front of the Interpretation Center, where the gold-seeking eggs learn to find the gold particles among the sand and gravels of the river.
During the activity is explained not only the manual technique of extracting this valuable metal but also its origin, uses and properties, and the social, cultural and natural environment surrounding the search for gold.
The best of all is that all participants can take home, as a reward for effort and patience, the gold particles found during the workshop.
Visits will be made on Wednesdays at 11 am and Saturdays at 6 pm at the price of € 8 for adults and € 5 for children under 16, with prior reservation and limited places.
