Pictures: december 1989, december 2001
|Many parts of the batán at the
original place in Lacort were already lost at the time of the rescue.
Some parts in the open air museum necessarily are replicas
but both pictures prove how original material was used where possible:
compare the hammers and the balks.
A small panel on one of the walls explains the construction and the functioning of the machinery. Keep your Spanish dictionary ready.
