WHAT WE’LL SEE
Three floors with an educative aroma. On the groundfloor, the long and hard process of the grain until its arrival to the mill. Stages which goes from the sowing to the sack of flour, with mandatory stops on the way in shape of words almost forgotten: the threshing, the grain measure, the bushel… An upper floor, the classic tasks of rural working and the customs from the rural areas. The slaughter, the hunting, the saffron, the grape harvest and the ranching. On the upper floor, 150 pictures which describe pilgrimage scenes, processions, caves and women and men of the period. A cinema machine simulate projections of images from the 70s of 20thcentury: bulls, football, big snowfalls, cavalcades, etc.
