Aqueduct of Santa Ana - Albaicin, Granada


This aqueduct dates from the 16th century and it is located at the foot of the Alhambra. It is unfortunately not always visible due to the fact that it is situated along the square of the church San Pedro which is not always open to public. From this square you can observe with clarity two structures of great scenic and archaeological interest: the pit and the aqueduct of Santa Ana or Romaila. In earlier times there was just a water canal but this was suddenly destroyed by a big explosion of a mill that was situated at that place and caused a big hole. As a result of this a part of the hill colapsed, so they had to construct an aqueduct in order to continue its role again.
