Molí de les Tres Eres: a Living Testimony to the Past

Thanks to its conversion into a museum, the mill is once again making flour.

In the basement of the Molí de les Tres Eres you can see how flour was made in past centuries, before the arrival of electricity. Through the “Living Testimony to the Past” exhibition in the millstone room you can experience the hard work of the miller who operated machinery that was virtually unknown to most of his fellow townspeople, who at that time worked in the fields, mainly growing cereal crops.

Generations and generations of Cambrilencs have depended on the harvest and its yield, which could only be measured by the amount of flour produced by the town’s dozen or so mills. The livelihood of a whole town and its families relied on it.
