Recorded in front of the waterfall of the old mill located in the town center of Osintxu. We find information on this mill since the nineteenth century. In 1927 was used to get the the water supply for the village. It was used to grind grain until 1974 and its machines are still save. During the last operation years, a generator was added to the mill in order to generate electricity. The recording, besides the sound of the waterfall, shows some voices of parents and children coming out of the adjoining school.
