Likuit Water Cultures


Water cultures in southern Europe: Alpujarra Málaga, Andalusis.
They represent the most beautiful of the Andalusian root water cultures in the foothills of the Malaga Alpujarra in their decline towards the Mediterranean Sea. In this space a rich irrigation agriculture has been developed for centuries, dating back to the Andalusi period. Malaga Axarquía is the epicenter of a subtropical agriculture based on avocado, mango, which is intermingled with traditional olive, fig and almond groves. Climate change adds to the secular water shortage in the area. Today, all the levels involved in the Axarquía in Malaga are looking for solutions for the sustainable management of water in a territory of strong agricultural and tourist expansion, attracted by the beauty of the material and intangible culture of the region.
