You are now at a point on the old bed of the river Daró and so we will take advantage to explain the reasons which caused the change in the course of this river which is now a tributary of the Ter.

Towards the end of the seventeenth century, the old owners of the channels for the mills of Gualta and Pals neglected the cleaning of the channels as they were only interested in collecting the payment in grain from the people entitled to use the water, and for their part, the people entitled to use the water had no interest in building dams and opening channels in the bed of the Daró and did not worry about what effect this might have.

At this point, several affected owners started secretly building a channel to redirect the course of the Daró, something which caused various confrontations.
