Traditional Valencian fishermen's barracks in Albufera

This type of housing was used in the rural world of the Levantine provinces, but it had its greatest use by fishermen who lived on the banks of the Albufera.

At present, there are few barracks in that area, of which only two are more than 200 years old. The one you can visit during this excursion goes back about a hundred years.

Almost at the end of the Albufera barge excursion, it stops to see the hut.
