(Place of the Olive Mill)

Les moulins ? huile (appel ?a bras ou a sang?, c'est-?-dire ? traction animale) ?taient nombreux et situ ? l'int?rieur des remparts. Il est tr difficile de les dater, car la technique a peu ?volue au cours des si?cles.Dans plusieurs maisons, on retrouve meule et pressoir. Ceux-ci, tr bien conserv dans ce moulin, sont de pr?cieux t?moins de leur fonctionement.La premi?re pression ? froid ?tait pour l'usage de la table, la deuxi?me pression ? chaud pour l'usage domestique, la troisi?me, impropre ? la consommation, servait pour la savonnerie puis pour les lampes.

Place of the Oil Mill
Oil mills (called "a arm or blood," that is to say, animal powered) were numerous and located inside the walls. It is very difficult to date them because the technique has changed little over the centuries.In many houses, there are wheels and presses. They are very well preserved in this mill, precious witnesses of their working order.

The first cold pressing was for the use of the table, the second hot pressing for domestic use, third, unsafe, used for soap and for lamps.Residues were burned to heat the water for the second pressing.
