The Paper Mill is located in Old Mill Street, now Rua Roberto Ivens, on the left bank of the River Lys, near the urban core of the city, dating from the century. XIII.

It is a museum space, linked to learning traditional arts and crafts related to the role and cereal and results of a project of recovery and rehabilitation carried out by a multidisciplinary team (from the renowned architect Álvaro Siza Vieira the technicians of the Municipality) in order to preserve the traditional arts and crafts memory inherent in this socio-cultural heritage, including the grinding of cereal (corn, wheat and rye), the production of olive oil and paper production.
