Aqueduct and roman baths

The aqueduct was built in the 1st century and was later used in the Arabic ditch system. Even today, some sections of it are still used as part of a traditional irrigation system. The tallest part is next to the river Verde, at the height of the Torrecuevas neighborhood and part of other sections that pass through the city, like the one in the area of ​​the square, next to the Carrera de la Concepción. This aqueduct was carrying water for the city and the salt factory in El Majuelo Park. In the excavation we also saw some Roman baths and some other elements that were used in funerals of Roman origin from the same era. During this rainy season the water reached a high enough level that the staircase leading to the hot springs was totally waterlogged.

The volume of water that moved was too large to supply the city, so it is supposed to be used to treat the factory Salting can be found today in the botanical garden.

Vestigios romanos

En el centro de Almuñécar se encuentran estos restos arqueológicos que una vez trajeron agua desde el Río Verde hasta Almuñécar, en lo que era una de las ciudades más importantes de la época. El volumén de agua que movía era demasiado grande para abastecer a la ciudad, por lo que se supone que se utilizaba para tratar en la factoría de Salazón que se puede encontrar hoy en día en el jardín botánico.
