In addition to Teixois' beautiful houses and buildings, the town has numerous water mills, with their pestle, mill and millwheel, etc. The pestle is mentioned in documents about the hill-fort of the Marquis of Ensenada in the 18th century. It was a tool for pounding iron. The mill was the property of several owners, who used it according to a system called "Quendas". The fulling machine was used so that the fabrics and textiles would have a better consistency. The millwheel was located in a shed, attached to the cistern's base in order to take advantage of the force of the water.
