The old Perez watermill

A long time ago, a creek was feeding a grain mill, the old Perez water mill. As the city extended, the old mill became a park. It is located in the Malvin rambla, next to Alejandro Gallinal street. I posted on this mill a couple of years ago; it is a good place to exercise old film cameras.

The interior of the mill was once converted into a museum, and there were some cultural activities from time to time. Now the building is closed, and the old weathered doors are a twin image of neglect among graffiti.


The wagon is still outside, with its broken wheel and rusted metal.

During my photo expedition, a tourist tour came into the park. The tour guide told them the (true) story of the place being used for marijuana legalization meetings, before the weed became legalized in 2016.
