Ecomuseum-Flour Mill

The Ecomuseum-Flour Mill was created on the site of the Molí del Mig, one of the three mills of the medieval town of Castelló d’Empúries.

It is a three-storey building constructed around 1905 on the site of the original building. One can still see the original machinery, which is mainly made from wood, and was partially renovated in the middle of the XX century. Nowadays, the excellent conservation state of the building permits to show the process of flour manufacturing.

From 1997, the Ecomuseum-Flour Mill is one of the museums assigned to the Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia System , an association that shows the process of industrialization of Catalonia.
