The rush for water

Lalevade gets its name from the Occitan word “levada”, equivalent to the French “levée”. Originally, a levada was a pebble dam, without cement, placed across the river. It allowed water to be directed towards the “béal” or “béalière” (small canal) that irrigated crops and powered a mill, a quite remarkable agricultural engineering!
