Molí Sol de Costa
The Molí Sol de Costa is in the Barranco de los Molinos (waterwheels gully) , in the region of Ares del Maestratwe can find a valuable variety of natural, landscape and architectural elements which were declared as the first Property of Cultural Interest with the category of Ethnological space in the Valencian Community. The name of the gully comes from the five waterwheels built in the 18th century during a period of economic and demographic growth. It is a linear network of hydraulic constructions; each one is made up of a pool which retains water, a pit that leads the water to the grinding machine, a country house and an irrigation canal that connects the different waterwheels.
The last one is called Sol de Costa. Nowadays it is an interpretation centre that has the aim of explaining visitors its natural and cultural values. This building hosts an exhibition of all the restored grinding machinery and some ethnological elements. In the grinding room, a screening about the last miller can be watched.
