Cuculla
The cowl (from the Latin: cuculla, meaning "little house") is an item of clothing consisting of a long, hooded garment with wide sleeves. Originally it may have referred simply to the hooded portion of a cloak. In contemporary usage, however, it is distinguished from a cloak or cape (cappa) by the fact that it refers to an entire closed garment. Today it is worn primarily by most Catholic and Anglican monks when participating in liturgical services.
Developed during the early Middle Ages in Northern Europe, they became the formal garment for those in monastic life. Originally they were worn simply to give greater warmth than would an open cloak to people who regularly spent long hours in unheated and drafty churches.

Caminets de Mallorca: Sa cuculla de Fartàritx
Hola! Ha costado un poco ponernos en marcha, un comienzo lento que quizá augure un final ajetreado de esta temporada. Sí, la primera excursión ya se retrasó algo más de lo acostumbrado y la segunda ya no digamos.

Pòrtol, es meu poble » Betlem a la Cuculla de Fartàritx
L’excursió d’avui ha estat de les més especials que hem fet, tant pels paisatges com pel significat de col·locar un Betlem a dalt del cim. La pujada ha estat bastant dura per els que no estàvem en forma, endemés el camí estava tot molt humit i era fàcil patinar a les roques, per sort tot ha sortit bé.
