Es Broll de Buscastell natural water well with irrigation system of water mains built during the Arab domination

Es Broll de Buscastell a well which rises in the mountains, near Buscastell, situated in a beautiful valley surrounded by terraces with orchards and fields, one of the few wetlands on the island of Ibiza and is equipped with an irrigation system pipes built during the Arab era.
In those days the Arab rulers created a ingenious irrigation system to distribute the water in the valley, by using the natural decay through trenches, tanks and cisterns in order to lead then it to the neighbors, who at that time all the same water rights.
This construction of agricultural engineering with ditches, canals, swimming pools, terraces, mills and reservoirs is still in use, and fed with the water of Es Broll, in one of the most important wetlands on the island.
Es Broll floods during spring, autumn and the heavy rain fall, and rising water in the torrent and the water channels, create this unparalleled place on the island of Ibiza, where decades ago you could enjoy natural waterfalls and reservoirs throughout the year.
 In the winter of 2016-2017 damage to terraces and road emerged by heavy rains, but just for a short time the area's former 'splendor' was restored with some waterfalls ....
A visit to Es Broll Buscastell is most enjoyed with a lovely walk, along the Cami des Broll 3.8 km, on foot, while enjoying fabulous views over the valley..
