El Javea Town Hall five windmills of The flat de San Jerónimo (those numbered 1, 2, 3, 7 and 8), which for a few weeks have been formally owned by the Local Administration and have been incorporated into the inventory of municipal assets. The Councilor for Heritage, Antonio MiragallHe explained that when he took the council and began to review documents a big surprise was to find that the windmills did not appear as a municipal heritage and therefore the City Council had no power to take action for conservation and protection.

As indicated Miragall, with this regulation the Consistory will be able to avoid any attempt of usurpation of the patrimony that is of all and can also legitimately start up projects to improve its state and protection, as well as try to obtain subsidies to rehabilitate them.

That is why, within the new tourist routes, has been included on the mill that will reveal these historical buildings.
