We are the González-Aguilar family.
A few years ago, we decided to make our property accessible to the public and turn the mill into a museum to show visitors from far and near the legacy that our ancestors entrusted us with: a centennial watermill, situated on the banks of the Majaceite-stream and in the midst of a unique natural environment.
The legacy entrusted to us is not only material, but also related to a simple almost lost lifestyle. A lifestyle with old traditions and recipes passed down from generation to generation.
In 2003 we embarked on a comprehensive reform of the mill and we recognized that the best way to preserve this material and immaterial heritage is not only to restore the building, but also to give others the opportunity to visit the mill while learning something.
So we decided to make El Molino de Abajo accessible to the public and to share this wonderful place in a village of the beautiful Sierra de Cádiz with other people.
Since El Molino de Abajo opened his door, thousands of children and adults have visited us and learned about watermills.
We look forward to welcoming you to our mill!
