The Barranco de los Molinos houses a valuable set of natural, scenic and architectural elements that have earned it the declaration of the first Site of Cultural Interest (SCI) with the Ethnological Space category (Decree 67/2009 of 15 May of the Consell). The name of the ravine comes from the five hydraulic mills built in the 18th century during a period of economic and demographic growth. It is a linear network of hydraulic construction, each of them is composed of a pond that retains the water, a tank that leads the water towards the milling machinery, a farmhouse and a ditch that connects with the neighbouring mill. The last mill, which is el Sól de la Costa, is a museum today. It has all the milling machinery restored and a complete exhibition of the ethnological elements. In the milling room, a projection has been installed through which you can see the moving story of the last miller who worked in the Barranco de los Molinos.
