DISCOVERING THE MILL OF INFERSA

A majestic and picturesque mill,
with a secular history which continues today.
Completely functional and visitable all year.

The mill of Infersa, inserted in the former home of the homonymous saltpan, dates back to the sixteenth century. Star-type (also called Dutch), is among the biggest in the area of Saltpans between Trapani and Marsala. The overall height of the tower beat the thirteen meters. The grinders at the center of the tower are of local limestone, assembled into wedges and held together by an iron ring: moved by the wind they rotate and grind the salt.

Among the many beauties and attractions to be visited at Saline della Laguna, the Mill of Infersa it is certainly the undisputed star. For its location, its history, for the charm of its gears and the elements that comprise it (fully functional), and for the media path recently launched.

It is a real jewel of industrial archeology, his history is closely linked with that of the surrounding saltpans. Its main role is, as always, to harness the power of the wind to turn the millstones for processing salt. The wooden gears (the use of iron in the saltpans is minimized) in fact determine the rotation speed of the grinders, up to one hundred fifty revolutions per minute.
