Mill in the center of Rucava was built in 1937 and operated by its primary purpose up until the sixties, being an important location for the grain processing in the Rucava County (Paurupe back then). It was also called a “castle of lights” as electricity, produced by steam locomotive to operate the mill, was enough to provide light also to the part of Paurupe village. In subsequent years, the building was used as a warehouse for mechanical workshops, which operated until the nineties.
In 2020, after the reconstruction of the building, the county created here an exposition of Rucava region cultural heritage. There is also a big musical collection of various musical instruments by the amateur musician Jānis Pūķis.
The Mill host various cultural events and art exhibitions.
On the ground floor of the building, there is a tourist information center, which provides an opportunity to receive up-to-date information about the region.
