Moulin des Justices

The Moulin des Justices is Located just off the D755 St. Michel Mont Mercure to les Herbiers road at an altitude of 275 metres, giving it great panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. The mill is round and (of) two stories high and is fitted with Breton sails (these are slatted wooden sails which were installed in 1890) although when it was built, in the late 18th century, it had cloth sails. The mill was working up to 1954 but then fell into disrepair. It was susequently repaired, but again today the severe gales of 2010 have broken one of the sails
On the same site during the second world war the Germans constructed a radar tower which was used to detect enemy aircraft and telescripteurs were installed in the Luftwaffe planes to direct them onto their target.

The Moulin des Justices also has a restaurant on site to cater for the hungry visitor.
