WHAT WE’LL SEE
The ensemble named “Big House” is formed by the house, the stables, and the wall that surround it; the construction dates to around 1786. The semicircular arch of the wall leads to a large patio where the typical millers house dominates, made with a masonry base with a cushioned facade and triangular gable. Observe the windows covered with wrought iron bars and the their distribution across two floors, with the lower floor for the foyer and rooms such as the kitchen, and the upper floor for the hall and other rooms. Its importance is such that it was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in the category of Monument in 1992.
