In the village lane called Paclera, alongside the Muranzina mountain stream, there used to be various cottage industries that relied on the power of the water for milling, crushing, forging metals and sawing.
In 1676 the miller Jakob Cott was the first person awarded the right to use the water by the municipality of Sta. Maria. Remarkably, the mill wheels only stopped turning a few decades ago, when the wheels were removed and the canals were filled in. The mill was left to rot.
But thanks to countless donations, contributions and the help of numerous volunteers, the foundation and the association were able to restore the mill to its former glory. The wheels began turning again in 2004 and the mill lives on to this day.
