The Boisse windmill, dating from 1699, is one of the many mills in Quercy. Monument still intact and in operation.

The wind and the water of the rivers: These were the two sources of energy available to the inhabitants of Quercy until the appearance of electricity. In the north of the Lot, the mills which used them were mainly used to grind the nuts whose oil was commonly used for cooking and lighting. But the mill could also grind apples, salt or grain. This is the case of the Quercy Blanc mills. The Boisse mill, which you come across on the route, is open to visitors five days a year (contact the Tourist Office of Castelnau - Montratier)
