Mill of Chelo

This old mill, located near the Chelo place, functioned until the 70s and is a maquila mill (milling system previous payment of an amount of milled cereal).

History: This mill was of paramount socio-economic importance for the surrounding area, since the peoples from the Betanzos area and even from Pontedeume came to mill here when the mills of their places did not have enough water supply in summer. They travelled along the Mandeo, going all the way upriver to the mill by boat.

Description: The maquila mills belonged to one owner. They were big and the miller and his family lived there. The miller was paid for an amount of flour, the maquila, which was proportional to the amount of milled cereal.
