Lost Treasures:
The Last Trapiche


The last trapiche, or traditional handcrafted wooden cane mill in the southern sierra de la Giganta operated as recently as Christmas 1998. Unfortunately it was later sold to a local store which resold it to a private individual in Loreto. What a pity. If you spot it lying in someone’s backyard in Loreto, let us know. It really belongs back in the sierra as a wonderful piece of its living history.
