Oil mill

 

 

 

Thanks to the excellent quality of the olives in the Serra de Tramuntana and the high demand for olive oil, Alquería Blanca’s oil mill was an important branch of business of the estate. The olive oil even won a silver medal at the world exhibition in Barcelona in 1888 to honour its excellent quality.

Only parts of the original oil mill are preserved today, for example the impressive stone mill and part of the hydraulic machine that replaced the traditional machinery in 1911.

The oil mill has recently been carefully renovated and converted in a multi- purpose room: It is primarily used for breakfast, lunches and dinners but thanks to its high-quality audio, video and lightning equipment, it is the perfect venue for all kinds of events.
