    • Vilanova de la Muga

The Count of Empúries, Ponç Hug IV, built different locks in order to channel the water of the river Muga for both irrigating the fruit and vegetable garden and for powering the flour mills of Castelló d’Empúries. The current lock dates back to the 17th century and still channels water to the same mill stream.
