These two old oil mills are integrated into the urban centre: “Resinas” owned by the Marquis of Castellón (18th century), and the other by the Marquis of La Motilla (19th century).  The mill named ‘ Resinas’ gets its name from the family that owned it. According to the municipal registry, it dates back to 1705.
