Long Description:
Waterwheels are an important part of the legacy of the Muslim occupation (903-1229) in the Majorcan countryside. The waterwheel was propelled by an animal, enabling the extraction of water from a well. The waterwheels, canals and the different types of water collection structures enabled the distribution and use of water, thus substantially contributing to the development of irrigation agriculture.
