Museum of water - arabaturismo
This engaging exhibition space is located in Sobrón, southwest Álava, in an outstanding natural setting, long associated with water. Its proximity to the Ebro river defines its character and terrain, without forgetting the properties of the mineral rich medicinal waters of its old spa, known as the “Spanish Vichy”, that enjoyed much renown during the 19th century and the first half of the 20th.
Sobrón pays homage to this history at the Museum of Water.
The Museum of Water offers visitors five thematic areas:
A place with an enchanting atmosphere that invites the visitor to enter the world of water through stunning visual and auditory sensations related to the different states of this substance.
The science of water

Water that cures
The therapeutic functions attributed to water throughout history and its importance in different religions are explained here.
Water and environment
In keeping with a philosophy of respect for the environment, development models that are kinder to the planet and practices aimed at saving and reducing water consumption figure prominently in the museum. At the end of this space, the visitor can enter a tunnel to experience the water cycle.
Water that thinks
The public can enter a gigantic human head, projected inside which are images and messages concerning the importance of this element in basic biological functions.
