Museo Hidráulico Molino de Martos
|LOCATION: PASEO DE LA RIBERA|
The Museum of Water, part of the Martos Water Mill, shows us its own particular view of history through the perspective of local culture, water management and the traditional uses of plants, whether as a food source (flour from cereals), the dying of cloths and textiles, the tanning of animal skins or the manufacture of vegetable fibres.
This mill dates from the 12th century, but the restoration carried out in the 14th and 16th centuries changed its appearance considerably. It contained three fuller’s mills, a grinding chamber and a jetty. It was the main grinding mill for cereals in existence in the city for many years.
