Mount Water Mills

In this mountain parish there were 42 mills of simple rotation that have a system of property shared by "heirs", that is, the property, being not communitarian, is distributed by several families, what creates very own community rules and ties.

The recovery of 14 of these mills was the reason that led to the creation of this Museological Nucleus.

This nucleus allows to visit the mills through pedestrian routes with beginning and end in the headquarters building of the nucleus, crossing several landscapes that this zone of the Mountain range has to offer, surprising the agricultural works according to the time of the year.
