In the past this was the daily meeting point in Mont-roig. In its basins, the women of the village washed and rinsed their laundry. The water comes from the spring of les Hortes, which traditionally has been used to water the different orchards of this zone as well as for the ancient medieval mill, where flour was milled before the building became a private house.
The laundry place was documented in the XVIII century and has had important rebuildings – the last one in 1991 -, today only one of the washing sinks is roofed, in former times both of them were. The laundry place is situated near the Canal Gate, one of the main ancient entrances of the village.
From the laundry place we can continue the expedition tour through Mont-roig borough on different trails.
