5 · The Mill

In the current Rural House there was an old flour mill that still keeps all its milling machinery. On both banks of the Iregua River, many mills were built in the past from the source of the river in the municipality of Villoslada.
The mill needed the water to be transported to the impeller that rotated, moving the millstones. These watering cans were also used to water some vegetable gardens. The mill was essential in rural society for the milling of cereals for feeding people and animals.
