The Mill Museum of Alomartes

Just outside of the town of Alomartes is a curious ethnic mill museum. This is an ancient construction of the prop er town and was in full working order up until a few years ago.

It is the only survivor out of a group of mills in this area. Antonio Izquierdo who is the caretaker and museum fouder has been collecting various artefacts from other mills in order to put to present and historical account of these mills and the traditional way of life in this area. Near to the mill is an old system working with its original pump mechanism- it is believed to be the only one left in spain. The mechanism is based on the compression of air, allowing the water to rise to the highest part of the property.
