Description
It is in a location called Mandra, on the right of the Tresinaro torrent (it has been abandoned). The building is made of juxtaposed rocks and retains inside two of the three pairs of grinders with relative wooden frames. There is also a fourth grinder, called "gròla", which works vertically in the squeezing of the nuts. The building, which already existed in 1778, hasn't been used since the end of the 1970's.
