This classic flour mill is very characteristic of the traditional architecture of Majorca. Its use was widespread since the 12th century and they were usually built near the villages or towns and they usually were part of a farm or a hamlet.
It is formed by a circular tower of seven meters of height, with an interior spiral staircase and a roof that still preserves some of the original mechanism that was used to orientate the sails towards the wind; there are several small windows within the tower which were originally used to determine the wind direction to set the sails accordingly.
The interior of the mill offers several different rooms, an outside area on the first floor which could be made into a terrace with spectacular views and a garden where you could relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the location.
It is important to point out when doing the restoration project that the flour windmills of this period consisted of six blades instead of four, a characteristic trait of the Mallorcan windmills.
This beautiful restoration project has a lot of potential to create a wonderful home that combines traditional architecture with a new design layout.
