  • This mill, listed as a Historic Monument, is undoubtedly the best known in Quercy, partly because it has been open to the public for so long, but principally thanks to its magnificent natural setting and to the very fine quality of the fortified building. Its history, intimately connected with that of the Cistercian monks of Les Alix, began in the 13th C. There are no less than four pairs of grindstones, which enabled 3 tons of flour to be milled per day. Mr. Faure shows visitors round and sets the mill working for each visit. He points out all the methods the monks used to prevent thieves/pillagers getting in and stealing the flour. Models make it easy to understand how the mill functioned.
