Masia Molí de Can Batlle
Molí de Can Batlle farmhouse is a municipal facility of historical and cultural interest that features a seventeenth-century farmhouse, some of the original elements of which, such as the kitchen, the fireplace, the sink, a wine press, the threshing floor, the pool and the courtyard, may be visited.
The two flour mills, which are now a museum, may also be visited: one is a roller-type mill from the fifteenth century, and the other, from the nineteenth century, is driven by a large water wheel over 10 metres in diameter, the only one of its kind in the province of Barcelona and one of only a few in Catalonia.
The guided tour shows how flour mills operated, their main elements, the miller's trade, and the tools that were used. It also underlines the significance of bread and the process of obtaining flour from wheat.
