Ecomuseum of Molí Petit

Grist mill of Medieval origin and related to the monastery. It worked using the force of the water up to the early 1970s. It is currently restored as an Ecomuseum and Interpretation Centre of Water Mills and of the River Ecosystem.

It is documented for the first time in the 14th century, but it is thought that it was already in service at the beginnings of the monastery in the 9th century.


At the Molí Petit Ecomuseum you will be able to know, in an entertaining and enjoyable way, how they lived in the Middle Ages in a flour mill. You will find a permanent exhibition, with some of the original elements of the mill, interpretive panels and models that facilitate the understanding of the operation of the hydraulic mechanism. Audiovisuals related to the mill and its natural environment are also screened.
