  • I was last Sunday, with my wife, at the opening of the Chiaravalle Mill, after the water was finally brought back. In fact, the old mill of the Monks had functioned as a mill for the convent until the Napoleonic period, when, with the suppression of monasteries, the building had been sold and turned into dwellings. After the return of the Cistercian monks in the early 1950s, the inhabitants were relocated and, at the beginning of the new century, the mill was restored. All that was missing was the water and now, thanks to a new channel, this one has come back to flow and the big paddle wheel to turn, as well as the stone grinder connected to the wheel. Absolutely to see!

  • The mill of Clairvaux was functioning under the Cistercians. In 1798 with the Napoleonic code, the monks were expelled, the mill went to families. In 1977 the Church bought the mill, but does not have enough money for the restoration. In 98 the Parco Agricolo Sud Milano pays restoration, with a conservative recovery. The bricks are old, all older than the 800. 700 recovery beams. You can see the wheel (rebuilt), the tree, the millstone. Other locals were recovered and today are Conference and venue of herbal courses. I think it's interesting to visit with guided tour, otherwise with the audioguide. I found it to be a place of difficult access for the disabled.
