THE Council of Mallorca has restored six windmills as part of the Windmill route.
The initiative is part of the Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion which seeks to create sustainable development to further innovation and to contribute to a ‘socially conscious’ Europe.
The Euroregion is composed of the Balearic Islands, Catalunya, and the Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrenees region of France.
The main objective of this project is to prevent the loss of mills which form part of the cultural heritage of the region.
The restored windmills are located in the municipalities of Montuiri, Manacor, Porreres and Llucmajor.
A map of the route which includes information on all of the mills from the four regions participating in the European project has already been printed in Catalan and French. Spanish and English versions will be added in the coming months.
