|Mills in Altoaragón - central eléctrica
|The position of the mill (white arrow) in the valley of the
Río Gállego. On the hill-foot is
Lárrede which you should visit for the
two beautiful Romanic constructions: San Juan de Busa and
la Iglesia de San Pedro.
The canal is clearly visible as an ochreous dam on the left of the mill.
|The canal (above, flanked with trees) does not end in a real balsa. The canal simply broadens to form a reservoir. A valve connects this reservoir with a parallel channel leading to the wheels. From the (now empty) cárcavo an underground tube connects the mill with the Río Gallégo.||We had the opportunity to visit the mill together with the owner. There is no machinery left. The mill was occupied by an American-Dutch couple before the present owner (and neighbour) bought the lot for his children. The construction has been rebuilt to present day standards. Nice place to live, but again a lost mill.|
