An unexpected gem of an attraction!
Jan 2020
We loved our visit to Mulino ad Acqua. Each unique space gives you a great insight into the history of the area and how people lived there. Seeing the mill in action and operated the latest in many generations of millers who have worked there is really fascinating.

Interesting place to visit
Oct 2019 • Couples
A small family run museum created around the water mill and home owned by the family for several generations. An audio tour guides you around the museum and through terraces that are part of the family home. At the end there is a chance to see the mill in action grinding wheat and also to learn some of the family history. The flour is for sale and I can confirm that it makes good pasta!

Brilliant Historical Mill
Oct 2019 • Couples
We visited this mill when going to see the caves. We found the mill fascinating. What a historical gem. It’s even more special as the descendants of original milling family are still showing you around. This was an amazing place from the 18th century.

Interesting unusual water mill
Jul 2019
My wife and I went to check the place after seeing an advertisement in Pozzallo.
The mill itself was interesting in that it is a horizontal water wheel placed within the rock rather than the usual vertical, externally placed water wheels.
The place also had interesting information about the water mill and how it functions.
There were also generally related traditional items and tools which were in use in the past.
There is also a small souvenir shop.
We were certainly not disappointed with the visit.

Living history
Sep 2019
Great to see a working mill, just as it was many years ago. Nothing has really been changed so you get a real feel for how it must have been. Audio commentary in different languages and we were the only people there on our visit. Well worth a detour if your in the area. You can also walk from the mill to a grotto following some signposts. There is nothing much to see but if you fancy a quiet walk have a wander. Mill is great value tho’.

So Weird So Good
Sep 2019 • Couples
Definitely this was not a planned stop. We were the only visitors and it seemed like a scene from a creepy movie. Finally some woman who doesn't speak English wanders out and invites us in. We hesitantly follow. It didn't matter about the language barrier. Of a tour was easy to understand. All in all an interesting pit stop. I seemed to make her day and she made a little bit of cash too. I wouldn't go out of my way for this to her however.

Defiantly worth a visit
Jul 2019 • Couples
This attraction is very well thought through - the audio guides (available in a range of languages) are interesting, informative and enhance the journey through a historic home of a miller and his family. The lady who greeted us was very friendly and clearly proud of her family's home and past, she was an excellent host! I thoroughly recommend a visit.

Fascinating watermill
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is definitely worth a visit. The lady who showed us around was lovely (7th generation miller I think), and there has been a mill on this site for a very long time. The cave where the donkey was kept was originally an early christian chapel! there is excellent audio in each room in a choice of languages and it is amazing to think people lived in the caves right into the 1950s. Go as you won't be disappointed!

Worth the stop!

We were the only visitors early afternoon on a June Wednesday. Museum is extremely well done, interesting, and attractive. The family connection is an added bonus.

Super interesting
Mar 2019
We wanted to visit a cave nearby but it was closed. We ended up visiting this museum and was totally worth it. The woman there didn’t speak English but made herself well understood. The museum explains how a family used to live there. They have in display the different instruments used back then and the way people used to live inside this caves. The English audio guide helped a lot. The site is small but very worth it. The woman was super super nice and in the end we bought a very nice pack of organic flour that they are still producing there. Totally worth the ride.
