      A esto hai qu'añidir que cada pueblu ye, comu yá diximos, una unidá económica porque tien un espaciu d'aprovechamientu agrícola (cortines y güertos) y ganaderu (morteres y puertos) que ye esplotáu polos grupos familiares qu'ellí viven.
      To this one must add that every village is, as we have already said, an economic unity because it has an agricultural (communal crop fields and gardens) and livestock (communal pastures and high pastures) use which is exploited by the family groups who live there.
