From the 60s of the twentieth century activity fell into decline due to lack of profitability and great unhealthiness; however, a factory persisted until 2005, when this industry disappeared altogether. In the Rua de Couros and surroundings we can see a large number of tanks where the skins were submerged, as well as the river Couros, which provided the necessary water for all tasks. It is a very interesting place, which is very close to the historic center, so if we have time we should pay you a visit. Access is free and open 24 hours a day.
