Molinàs abandoned village

Price: free of charge

The little neighbourhood of Molinàs was founded in the late eighteenth century on a valley among the Alberes Mountains, just 4 kms from the center of Colera village. At this point various water streams converge so flour mills were built here, and also vineyards and olive fields were planted. During the twentieth century the rural environment of Molinàs was gradually depopulated and today is a mute testimony of that past. It retains much of those farmhouses built in previous centuries and even abandoned utensils in a beautiful and very quiet natural setting. You can easily walk from the center of Colera by a nice walking.
