Description
The stone construction is spread over three levels and has a double layered roof and retains inside two pairs of grinders activated by horizontal mixing wheels, further down there are two other pairs of grinders which used the force of the water moved by the previous ones.
Its style suggests that it was constructed in the XVIII century.
the plant was abandoned in 1935 and afterwards was restructured and transformed into a residence.
Currently it's an interesting 19th century court building complex.
