Description
The building has a hall-shape with residence on the first floor.
The horizontal wheels were activated by water which came from a derivation canal. You can still see the wide storage tank from which the wooden rock feeding started.
Along the wall there's a niche which encloses a sacred image belonging to the first years of the XX century. Inside the building many parts of the original plant are still conserved. The mill has been abandoned.
