Crowdfunding Campaign to Preserve the Tradition of the Navatas of the Gállego River

The Biscarrués-Mallos de Riglos Coordinator launches a crowdfunding campaign to renew the wood of traditional Aragonese navatas, recognized as UNESCO’s Intangible Heritage. Contributors can support with various amounts and receive thank-you gifts. Preparation continues for upcoming river descents. The campaign aims to raise €3,000 for materials, highlighting the tradition’s uniqueness.




“Help us preserve an Intangible Heritage of Humanity declared by UNESCO.” This is the call made by the Biscarrués-Mallos de Riglos Coordinator in the crowdfunding campaign launched to raise enough money to renew the wood of the navatas that will ply the waters of the Gállego River on April 21st.

In this sense, they explain that the ancient navateros let the logs dry for a year and then lowered them down the river so that the wood was in perfect condition for navigation and its subsequent use in the construction of houses, palaces, ships, cathedrals… ” We extend its use for several years but as is evident, from time to time we have to renew it. This is what happens to us this year ,” they pointed out.
