Monuments of Istán
They are located throughout the village and branch out to irrigate the different areas of orchards and terraces that are around it.
Of Muslim origin, the irrigation ditches were used to channel the water for irrigation and domestic use of the people. This construction represents a clear exponent of the level reached by the Arab people to channel the waters in favor of their human use.
The Arabs made the most of all the geographical features, building terraces where it seems impossible and bringing the necessary water for irrigation to them by means of an ingenious irrigation channel.
Water is the essential element of the landscape of Istan and forms part of its very essence.
Today, the irrigation channels continue to serve as water canals for the traditional irrigation of the orchards, constituting a network that runs through the subsoil of many streets in the town.
It is worth mentioning the so-called “Acequia del Chorro” whose route forms, from the source of the Molinos River, a walk of incredible natural beauty.
