Mill festival

From grain to flour


Every year on the first Sunday in August it’s time... from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm old and young in Val di Terento experience the miller’s craft just like in grandfather’s day. With the clattering of the water-powered wooden mill wheels and using the weight of the heavy mill stones Terento millers grind the grains to flower in the 500 years old flour mills!

Adventure tips for the whole family:

  • Viewing and demonstration of the up to 500 years old flour mills
  • Easy hike for the whole family / shuttle available (for a charge)
  • Musical supporting programme
