Els llocs urbans a la València musulmana: el cas de Borriana

Pierre Guichard


In this article there is a well documented digression, after Arabian and Christian sources, about the problems of studying the urban geography of eastern al-Andalus (the mediterranean zone of the Iberian Peninsula). The author stops to consider the case of medium towns that, as Borriana (the focus of attention of the article), show up in a contradictory way in the preserved documents. From the «madina of arabian geographers to the «dogar tan vil», «no maior d'un corral» of lames l's Chronicle, the documental odyssey of Borriana -a vital place in the north of the Valencian Arabic State- is researched here in detail.
