Molino Forclaz, Colon

4.1
#1 of 18 in Historic Sites in Province of Entre Rios
Visit a rustic and charming monument to the agricultural heritage of the area at Molino Forclaz, an aesthetically pleasing stone windmill. The brainchild of Juan Bautista Forclaz, a Swiss immigrant, the windmill was completed in 1890. Unfortunately, due to the lack of proper wind speed and consistency required for the blades to turn, the windmill went largely unused until it became a local attraction and a National Historic Landmark in 1985.

  • beautiful place. Thursday evenings of February, is a dramatization on the history of the mill. It combines the past with the present. Magical. The only problem is the way. It is no signal and is by gravel road.

  • Historic mill in the area, with a brief guided tour that explains the history of the owners of the place. The tour is not extensive. Hence it can be to farm for lunch a bite

  • AMAZING PLACE...! Visiting it is a way to honor the memory of Juan Forclaz and keep alive their dream, result of the work, effort and dedication... Values we need to claim to be a great country.

  • A beautiful place to know and admire. Thanks to the Friends Association of the Forclaz mill that keeps him and restores it's that you became a forced site to visit. It has an appropriate atmosphere in its buildings, video room and Park. A place to go, learn and enjoy.
