Mills in Altoaragón


Gabasa is situated east of Barbastro and Monzón. From each locations you can easily reach Azanúy, then Peralta de la Sal and then Gabasa. The Molino de Truco as the mill is named after its miller is only short walk away from the road. About half a kilometer before the grave­yard at the entrance of the village a service road leaves at the right. Walk this road down — general direction is south — and after less than a 1 km you'll be at the mill.
The site is interesting because of the enormous water storage (1). The mill proper is reduced to rubble.
