The International Molinological Society (TIMS) is active since 1965, and is the only organization dedicated to mills at a worldwide scale. TIMS has around 500 members in over 35 countries.



On the 24th and 25th of September, the 1st Iberian Days on Molinology will take place in Lousada (Portugal), bringing together a group of Portuguese and Spanish researchers, who carried out works and studies in the field of History, Geography, Architecture and Ethnography, with the intention to share experiences.
