The feed of the mill with cereals was occured with a wooden mechanism called a cup. This is a type of box that has the shape of a pyramid funnel overturned. The basket is supported by four vertical beams that start from each end of the gyros and reach the roof. The millers themselves are also the millmen who learned the art from their parents and grandparents. Profession and art go from father to child. Undoubtedly, however, the most amazing route is the one with the tourist train that starts from the beach of Parga passing through thick olive groves.
