Which is the origin of “marger” profession?
Our profession is documented since the 15th century in Majorca, but the dry stone technique goes back to many thousands of years ago in different cultures. The construction of terraces, here called “marjades”, appear due the need to cultivate in the mountain. There are raised on the slopes to retain soil and prevent landslides. Time ago the retaining walls of the terraces were constructed from stones cleared from the fields during preparation from agriculture. Our job is one of the most traditional and artisan of the island, and the ‘margers’ work has changed the landscape. In recent decades the profession has developed and diversified a lot.
