This was the first mill built in the high course of the river Vinalopó. It is located on the left bank of the river. Its creator was Laureano Ballester, but his mismanagement made that in the early 19th century very few mills remained his property. Then it became property of José Laporta Valor, who never used it to make paper, but to supply electric lighting to the Molí Sol and the Molí Pont. Nowadays the state of this mill is ruinous. In its main body it consists of a vaulted ground floor on which there is another floor divided into two well defined sections; the second and third floors were devoted to the drying of the paper, with a sloping roof sheltered with tiles and wood boards between the beams. Downstream the Molí l'Ombria, there is the Molí Serrella, today a private property transformed into a second home. This mill was a flour mill. Nowadays its grindstones are kept in the basement.

MOLÍ SOL (Blanc i Negre)

It is located on the right bank of the river, attached to the Molí Torro. This mill is also known by the name of Blanco y Negro (black and white), due to the cigarette paper it manufactured. It was built in 1856. This mill has a rectangular shape including four bays, with an elevation of four floors. The ground floor corresponds to a semi-basement vaulted by rectangular pillars. The first floor, which you can enter through the main floor, was devoted to the toilets of the workers, offices and homes, and it repeats the reticulated structure created in the semi-basement, but that configures it as a lintelled system of wooden beams on mortar pillars. This scheme is repeated on the upper floors. The second and third floors were used for the air-drying of the paper. Several attachments were added to the main building at different times, depending on the needs of the industry (workshops for carpentry, blacksmithing, house of the doorman, etc.). Shortly before the mill you can see the settling ponds used to clean the water before its entry into the mill. Its general current conservation is average.
