Arrabal Mill

A WALL PROTECTED THE POOR QUARTER SURROUNDING ITS AREA

Its remains are located at the southwest slope of the Castle Hill, in the rest of the outer wall of the San Miguel poor quarter.

The wall protected the poor quarter surrounding all its area, and was connected to the higher zone of the Castle and the village. Today, several stretches of San Miguel low enclosure are preserved, and also part of the mill building: Basement and grinding room, spillway and annexed rooms.

Arrabal Mill

The origin of the mill is medieval, possibly between the 14th-15th centuries, when the poor quarter is walled. The mill supplied flour to San Miguel and Santa María's inhabitants, from who we know, went down the Hill for supplies daily.

In the second half of the 20th century the weir was dynamited in order to make Guadaíra's flow easier, removing the tiles and destroying the mill building and the miller's house, both already abandoned by mid-century.
