An unusual setting

Unusual and highly original, this is the perfect spot holding an extra special wedding. The building of El Molino de San Lázaro (Saint Lazarus’ Windmill) was completed in the eighteenth century, after it was rebuilt in a new location. However, experts believe that the original structure was built as early as the sixth century, an era during which the mindmill known as El Molino de Sal (The Salt Mill) was subjected to structural and functional  modifications.

Nowadays the mill is perfectly adapted for celebratory events. It has three distinct floors all suited to the various different parts of a wedding and the reception party. Surrounding the building is stunning landscape and views for miles.

Authenticity and Intimacy

The bottom floor is particularly atmospheric and is where some of the original structure can be seen through glass panels, perfectly combining the old with the new. It is perfect for intimate and typically romantic weddings  with a capacity for around 60 people.

Banqueting from above

The main banquets take place on the second floor, where some of the best views of the Basílica del Pilar and the River Ebro can be enjoyed. On the second floor there is enough space for upto 200 people to indulge. The stunning views can also be enjoyed from the outside too, from the building’s gorgeous little balconies.

Parties like no other

Up top, the Mill’s attic is reserved for parties of around 70 people and is the ideal place for partying on into the night. With its high ceilings and natural light, the space is unique and undeniably special. Zaragoza’s two jewels, the basilica and the river can also be admired from the third floor and serve as a beautiful reminder of the history that surrounds you.
