Decommissioned stones are typically recycled as garden tables.
ld mills in Aragón —and probably everywhere else for that matter—
do not have many options.
Most of them are abandoned, then forgotten and later on slowly disintegrate
by the effects of the weather.
Some of the mills, after they are gone, are remembered and their name is given
to streets (e.g. Castiello de Jaca), village squares, even housing projects.
till other mills are recuperated and then resurrect as a (second) residence, an appartment block or a tourism
office. In all these situations the end result is more or less the same: a total loss of the
original layout of the construction and its contents — apart from the stones naturally.
That is what here also happened. At the time of our visit, the pond was filled with earth and vegetables were grown.
