Stop watching those round and gigantic mills, not only beautiful to photograph, but to breathe and listen. In particular, the mill Sancho (one dating back to the sixteenth century structure), will offer you a further opportunity for joy: Connect the smell of saffron to the pages of an unforgettable novel.
