Expedition to the Molí Fariner of Can Pedrosa
With every walk around your rental apartment in BeCorp · Sant Just Desvern, you will discover new and charming corners. Today we propose a visit to the medieval heritage of the city: discover the Molí Fariner of Can Pedrosa. It is only 3 km from your new home, so you can walk in 30 minutes.
This mill, of which almost all its structure is preserved, was built in 1306 and operated until the mid-seventeenth century. It is located next to a stream, since water was used as a driving force. Water passed through the well and moved the mola that crushed the grains of wheat. With this flour, the bread and the coca that was fed to the country was elaborated.
When the mill stopped working, it was used for different uses. It was even the place chosen to bury three dead by the plague in 1651, although they were later removed.
