The Dula

The Dula

Dawlah: round or turn, is the Arabic origin of the word dula, referring to the Moorish custom of gathering small family herds and horses in a single herd that the dulero (a resident of the village), grazed on land provided by the municipality in an area very close to the village.

The dula defines both the communal space that housed the animals and the collection of animals owned by the neighbors. For centuries, it constituted a similar organization for washing places, mills, and ovens.

Can only be visited on guided tours.
