Water has always played a fundamental role for the city of Coín, so much so that it is believed that the very origin of the city arises from the existence of "El Nacimiento".
Since its inception in "El Nacimiento" water has been used in Coín thanks to the uneven terrain in the "El Albaicín" area, using its power for energy production, mainly with flour and oil mills. In fact, according to the Ensenada Cadastre, in 1752 Coín had 19 flour mills, 15 oil mills, 2 cortidurías, 2 potteries, 4 tile factories and 2 candle factories.
In addition, water has not only played an important role for the urban area, but with the irrigation dams it has supplied all the orchards and their ditches until today.
Another element to highlight are the fountains, there are 245 documented fountains that have been distributed throughout the urban area for more than two centuries, some in the streets and others in private homes.
As the first point on this tour we will take Tejas street as a reference, where there is a spring.
Flour mill founded in 1780 based on the friction of two stones, which were moved by the force of water. It is currently an ecological flour mill, which maintains the old infrastructure, adapted to electricity.
