Tio Facorro Mill (Torre Pacheco - Murcia)

Tio Facorro Mill (Torre Pacheco)

Located in the urban centre of Torre Pacheco, this mill has survived throughout history and still stands despite the disappearance of this type of construction due to urbanization.

Its building has a circular plan with a frustoconical elevation that rises to 12 meters in height. Like all the mills of the time, its stone facade was covered with a mortar of lime and sand that offered it the necessary stability to withstand the strong winds to which it was exposed.

Throughout its history, it has passed through the hands of several different owners since its approximate construction in 1838. Later, due to the appearance of industrial grinding machines, the giant mill was abandoned to its fate. In 1997, the City Council was in charge of carrying out the first restoration project of the same.
