Pelay Correa Mill

This mill is located on the right bank of the Guadaíra River and is probably the oldest mill still standing. It is, like Realaje, of Arabic origin, although its name does not come from Arabic.

It is a river mill, that is to say, the force of the river water driven through a dam or azuda is what moves the mill’s machinery.

It took its name from the Grand Master of the Order of Santiago Pelay Pérez Correa to whom it was granted by Fernando III after the conquest of Alcalá in 1246.
