Rotating Since the 17th Century
The beautiful windmill in Lautrec rotates its blades in spring and summer, for tourist yes, but at least the can rotate, following the same direction for centuries and with the same mechanism. I climbed the stone stairs that leave from the village, near the church, got to the base, circled by a path up, I arrived at the height of the blades .. and then they began to spin! It was a show the some tourists who had visited, it was lucky for me as it was the first windmill I had ever seen. It made me smile.
