Venejan wind mill
Venejan wind mill - Venejan In 1813, a miller from Bagnols-sur-Cèze asked the town of Vénéjan for permission to build a windmill that would supply flour to the surrounding area. As a result, this windmill turned steadily for over 50 years, perhaps as many as 100 years. The industrial revolution and successive wars were the undoing of this wonderful old windmill.
Hours Free admission. Guided tours by appointment (contact the town hall of Vénéjan Monday though Friday).
Venejan wind mill Today, the mill of Vénéjan has been reborn. It has been restored with a thorough respect for the traditions of Provence. Thanks to the skills of the "Compagnons du devoir," a professional building guild, you can look at the mill and travel back in time. The mechanism is in perfectly functioning condition, and when Aeolius wills it, you can have the pleasure of seeing its sails turn.
