I vividly recommend you to follow the trails first. They will bring you to mills which are very well preserved or which are interesting in one respect or another.
The harinero trail brings you to flour-mills.
The aceitero-trail will immerse you in the world of olive oil.
The electricity trail will introduce you to the early years of electricity.
And we have some mill stone quarries also.

There is no batán-trail because all such mills are in ruins and only parts of the fulling-mill of Lacort remain.
