Molí de Dalt Ethnological Museum

Main theme: Ethnology Molí de Dalt in Sant Lluís is a beautiful reminder of the three windmills that characterised the typical architecture of the village - founded by the French - for almost 200 years. This mill may have been erected at the same time the first settlers began to build their houses in the area. Years later, the largest of the three mills, Molí d'Enmig, began operating on the high street a few metres from the first mill in 1776. Finally, Molí de Baix was constructed on a plot of land on calle Conde de Lannion in the southern part of the village in 1780. Molí de Dalt had wooden machinery with broad blades to harness wind power and rotate the mill that ground grain into flour. The mill was completely restored in 1987 and the blades and machinery for milling grain replaced. The ground floor houses an ethnology museum that has an interesting collection of farming implements, tools and utensils from traditional rural life and trades now extinct on display.
