The “Moinho da Ponte Velha” (old Bridge Mill) was owned by Mr. Varilhas, who not only lived there but also ground cereals for the whole city and all the surrounding areas. After his death the property was abandoned and for about half a century both the house and the Mill were in ruins.
In 1982 it was bought by the father of the current owner, Lucília de Castro Carção, but only in 2007 has the first diligence to start the restoration been made.
