CASA DE LA MOLINERA
Casa de la Molinera is located in Riba-roja de Túria, a town sitting on the banks of the river Turia. With hundreds of years of history to its name, the mill was built in the 15th century to ground grain and make flour. The lords of the barony of Riba-roja owned the mill until the year 1897, when the manorial system was abolished and Bautista Martí Broseta acquired it. His son installed modern milling machinery that ended up ruining him.
The story continues in 1944, when Manuel Alamar Mocholí bought the mill and his family built Casa de la Molinera, a family residence that also served as storage and an administrative base for the mill. Nowadays, Casa de la Molinera is owned by Ayuntamiento de Riba-roja de Túria, which has renovated the property to make it suitable for visitors. Additionally, the mill has been listed an Ethnological Site.
