Los conflictos por el agua en el País Valenciano durante la etapa feudal: el ejemplo de los molinos
In places like the Valencian Region, where the climate is arid, the flow rate of the rivers is irregular, and irrigation is essential if agrarian returns are to increase, the way water was distributed among irrigators often gave rise to clashes between them.
