Molino Quemado

This windmill is a cultural asset of the municipality since 2008, located in the neighborhood formed around, “Molino de Viento” (“Windmill”). It is commonly known as “The Burned”, because according to popular tradition, it was set on fire in 1875 by a neighbor of the Village of St. Nicholas in revenge for some decisions of the mayor. The infrastructure remained abandoned and in decline until in the 90s rehabilitation work was done getting the machinery to work again. It is the oldest wind gadget in the region and the largest windmill on the entire island of Gran Canaria, and we owe its restoration to the Association of Neighbors of the Burned Mill and the City of Mogán, having carried out the spectacular rehabilitation of the machinery the craftsman of Lanzarote “Maestro Domingo”. It is a symbol of identity and patrimonial reference of Mogán.
