Southern Spain
This hydraulic work was built for irrigation purposes. Its construction had a.o. to do with an attempt to introduce the planting of vines in order to produce wine. The works of the aqueduct began at the end of the nineteenth century, consisting of a floor of 42 arches, of a length of 170 meters. The aqueduct, stuated close to the village Fernán Pérez, in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, is no longer used. In the foreground (one of three) formerly introduced agaves, Agave americana (American agave). © Tom Kisjes May 2012
