Spanish name: Museo Hidráulico Molinos del Rio y Caballerizas

 Museo Hidráulico Molinos del Rio y Caballerizas River Windmills: There have been windmills on the right bank of the Segura river since the 12th century. The current windmill is a Neoclassical longitudinal building built in 1785 and designed by the Floridablanca Count with the idea of being prepared when the river ran high. The museum exhibits elements that were used to move twenty four stones by means of hydro power. The building has great value as it is the largest windmill complex in Europe.
 
Stables: This is one of the few examples of 18th-century civil architecture that remains in the city. This vaulted building, supported by three solid stone pillars, was used as stables by people whi came to the windmills and the Royal Hotel.
 
The River Windmill and Stables complex, inaugurated in 1989 and included in the Murcia City Hall museum network, after the restoration project undertaken by the prestigious architect Juan Navarro Baldeweg was completed.
