3 p.m. - Flour Power

Everyone’s heard of the infamous Moulin Rouge, but in its day the Moulin de la Galette was the true belle of the ball, posing for painters like Renoir (Bal du Moulin de la Galette)
and Van Gogh (Le Moulin de la Galette). Used to grind flour, the mill relied on two windmills for power: the Radet and Blute-fin. Over the years, the building has been used as a dance hall and a television studio before being sold into private hands.
