The Arco Aqueduct

18th-19th centuries

Archaeological sites

This work of hydraulic engineering possibly from the 18th-19th centuries, is made from limestone mortar and stone, with bricks in the interior arc supports.


The aqueduct provided water from the Alamillo's source and carried it to the old farms located along the Lorentes streambed, allowing for the irrigation of the entire farmed area of Alamillo.

The aqueduct was in use until a few decades ago, when the water source dried up, and was followed by abandonment of the farmland. 

This structure is connected to other sections of the same building works, which are located throughout the area.
