Carnival's local tradition

Ball del Moliner

per person

The Miller’s Dance represents the revenge of the inhabitants of La Pobla de Lillet, against the abuses of a local miller in the feudal times.  Traditionally the dance took place at the square of the village’s mill on Tuesday of Carnival.

According to legend, many years ago, there was a miller in La Pobla de Lillet who used to blend ashes with the wheat that people took him to grind. By doing so, flour measures grow.  The neighbours started to get ill and no one knew the origin of such a rare illness. When they discovered the fraud, the women of the village disguised themselves as old women and went to find the miller to punish him. He was violently beaten and fled in fear. The women opened the sacks and started to throw handfuls of the ash flour , generating a dense cloud of dust. That was the justice of local women.

In order to remember this legend, the local association La Brama has recovered this celebration. After looking for the miller all over the village, he is taken to Plaça del Molí de la Vila (the square of the village’s mill), were the dance takes place and it ends with a flour war.
