Molino Forclaz, Colon

4.2
#1 of 17 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.

  • Located in the historic centre of the city, one of the most beautiful Museum I saw. Since the start of the tour you feel part of history, the atmosphere is incredible and the guides are super friendly. If you go to San José, this place is a must stop. They charge bonus contribution but it is very cheap.
