Project Description

The watermill is one of the most ancient machines used by humans thousands of years ago. It marks a milestone in the history of Technology since it’s the first machine ever to be set in motion via a natural source of energy, the water, and thus replacing the human or animal motioned mills.

The watermill’s mechanism consists of two parts: the kinetic, which includes the water turbine and its compounds, and the milling one, consisting of the milling-stones and the operating compounds.

At Tzoumerka one has the chance to visit some amazing traditional watermills of exceptional charm, such as the watermills of Agnanta, Matsouki, Kristi and Katarraktis.
