Water and Qānāts pipes

In regions such as Calvià, where water is a scarce commodity, there are a great many constructions and effort put in to obtain water and lead it to the cultivated land.

There are two elements of this type that have special relevance in the municipality of Calvià
On the one hand we should point out Qüanats, conductions of Arabian origin that have been used until the present day. Amongst the most important of the boundary we can cite Sa Font de Sa Corriola, Galareia d'aigua de Valldurgent, etc.

On the other hand we should point out the complex water engineering at Bendinat and the public source at Es Capdellà.
