The Cal Pal mill and saw works is a clear example of the active past of the Ordino Valley related to processing natural elements.
The building dates back to the late 16th and early 17th century. The Cal Pal Mill and Saw Works is in the village of La Cortinada (Ordino), and was active until around the 1960s. In 1996 it was reopened as and Interpretation Centre with all of the original elements restored.
On the tour we will see a demonstration of woodcutting using an old hydraulic saw and we will also see the process of turning wheat into flour using an original grinding stone. All of the guided tours with a demonstration are complemented with an explanatory video.
