Mulino ad Acqua is an old 18th-century flour mill that was once powered by the Cusaidone stream, whereby water was channeled through ditches carved into the rock. The mill, once one of many, went out of production in 1956 and has been converted to a museum. It has been lovingly preserved by the Cerrato family and serves as a reminder of the way things were done in the past. The tour of the museum takes the visitors through the caves, a corridor with tools, the weaving room, vegetable shed, wood cave, barn, miller, stable, and water storage tank and passes the waterfall. Visitors can see the actual water mill mechanism and the fall that takes water to the collection stone bin 11 meters deep. There is also a paddlewheel located in the water room, which is designed in the Arabic style with imposing vaults and the old original millstones. There is a cave next to the mill that was the miller's home, with a barn and cowshed.
