|Overview of the site||Buildings of the mill|
|Most of the construction is still solid. The roof
of the annex has been
redone and the place houses some horse related things.
The only collapsed section is precisely the flour mill, alas. The walls
are down to the floor and all tools and machinery are gone.
A nice and solid arch gives access to a spacious cárcavo. The roof is very thick and consists of trustworthy masonry. A narrow strip is thinner and shows perforations for the shaft and the controls.

|We did look for a waterreservoir and the feeder-channel, and could find some traces of a canal, wider in places, but no azud, nor clear balsa, or cubo. Most has been eaten by the river. The western wall is baseless. Future could be very short-term for Arro's mill.|
