The different spaces that make up the Ecomuseum are organised through visits and cultural routes to show them in their own context. All of them are managed and organised from a traditional two-storey house at the foot of the Senda del Oso in the San Romano neighbourhood, in Villanueva.
Inside, exhibitions are displayed, and talks, workshops and different activities are regularly held to raise awareness of the cultural heritage of the area.
