COURT OF WATERS
The Court of Waters of the fertile valley of Valencia is the oldest existing institution of justice in Europe. Although some legal institution that solved the water problems of the territories of Valencia would already exist from Roman times, the organization which we have inherited dates from times of the Al-Andalus and, very possibly, from times of the Califato (Caliph rulers) of Córdoba, perfected from the first moments of the conquest of the Kingdom of Valencia by the king Don Jaime.
