On St Michael's Bastion, in this same garden, there used to be several windmills overlooking Marsamuscetto harbour. Unfortunately, these were subsequently removed and only the name of the adjacent street, Windmills Street, remains as a reminder. Built by Fondazione Cotoner in 1674. The windmills were there for the production of flour. One can still see old paintings of them standing out majestically over Marsamuscetto harbour. In 1850 the mills were there.This mill has been dismantled after the mill of db nr 19. ( after 1890). Possible 1 mill will be rebuilt.
