The mill, which dates back to the 17th century and is driven by undershot paddle wheels, can boast of being the oldest functioning mill in Switzerland. Visitors can follow the path of the grain up to the flour.

Description

In the village street Paclera, along the mountain stream Muranzina, there used to be the handicraft businesses that depended on the use of water power: the mills, stamp mills, saws and forges.

In 1676 the municipality of Sta. Maria granted the miller Jakob Cott the water right for the first time. The mill wheel turned until a few decades ago. Then the wheels were removed and the water channels were filled in. The mill was left to its own devices.

Thanks to many donations and contributions, the foundation and the association, also with the help of many volunteers, were able to restore the mill to its original condition.

Since 2004 the wheels are turning again, the mill lives on.
