The Blanquer Waterwheel

Peaceful place, situated beside the Calders river. The site includes the farmhouse, the waterwheel (including the pool and the canal), a vat and several cavities excavated in the river rock. Having developed an economic activity ever since 1126, this place has the earliest records of preindustrial leather tanning processes in Catalonia. The waterwheel still has a portal with lintel dating from the 18th century and millstones.
