San Antonio Water mill

The origin of the San Antonio Water mill probably goes back to medieval times. Eighteenth century documents confirm that the original building had only one floor. It was used as a flour mill and was named after a statue of St. Anthony that used to stand in a niche in the facade. It was a working mill right up to the mid-twentieth century, when the building began to be used to build boats to cross the Guadalquivir.

The river floods and changes in the hydraulic system have led to a series of structural reforms. Its current state is the result of rebuilding work carried out by the architect Juan Cuenca, which ended in 2008, including the recovery of the wooden flooring, the main rooms, the dike and the weir that connects it with the other mills.

It is currently used as an exhibition hall and has fixed visiting times.
