The Arabs, who devised an irrigation system time based on capillary irrigation that was unique in the world at the time, laid out the channels that garnered the area fame in the past for its agricultural products. Ses Feixes are the second most important wetlands in Ibiza and contain fresh and salt waters that house a wide array of fauna and flora. Ses Feixes in Ibiza is a small wetland area lying in between the city of Ibiza and Talamanca Beach. The Arabs, who devised an irrigation system time based on capillary irrigation that was unique in the world at the time, laid out the channels that garnered the area fame in the past for its agricultural products. The channels formed irrigated small rectangular plots of land denominated feixes. These channels were connected every few metres with other underground channels called fibles through which water circulated. The upper part of the fibles were made of a material (normally pine branches) that allowed water to pass through and thus, the water levels in the channels and in turn, the feixes could be regulated with the use of floodgates. The entrance to each feixa or plot, boasted a very characteristic threshold known as the portal de feixa which was the only construction of its kind in the world at the time: they are famous for their beauty and singularity: huge white stone frames with wooden doors. Ses Feixes is divided into three parts, two of which, Prat de Vila and Prat de Ses Monks, are cultivated; the third is a strip of wetlands called Es Prat that connects them.
