Muglin Ftan
The old mill of Ftan tells of the once rich grain culture.

Description

Cereal cultivation used to be the agricultural basis of the Lower Engadine. The fields on the terraced slopes shaped the image of the cultural landscape until shortly after the Second World War. The old mill of Ftan is the last witness of this era and tells of the once rich grain culture. There are two mills in the building in their original condition. The construction period of the older mill dates back about 400 years and is the oldest mill in Switzerland, which still functions in its original form, according to the Swiss Homeland Security. The rotor stones are driven by the water shovels and the wooden shafts to the powerful gears.
