Geocache Description:

Les sínies són part del llegat que deixà al camp mallorquí l'ocupació musulmana (903-1229). Amb l'ajut d'una bístia, la sínia permetia extreure l'aigua d'un pou. Les siquies i canals, els aljubs i els safareigs, permetien la distribució i aprofitament de l'aigua. Això va contribuir al desenvolupament de l'agricultura de reguiu.

Las norias son parte del legado que la ocupación musulmana (903-1229) aportó al campo mallorquín. Con la ayuda de un burro o una mula, la noria permitía sacar agua de un pozo. Acequias y canales, los aljibes y albercas permitían la distribución y aprovechamiento del agua. Todo ello contribuyó al desarrollo de la agricultura de regadío.

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.
