Historical-artistic study, technical data and history of interventions of "El Arco" Aqueduct in Villa de Otura (Granada)


In this project, a previous study was carried out in order to restore and enhance the aqueduct known as “El Arco”, in Villa de Otura.

For this purpose, a historical and artistic review of the aqueduct was carried out, as well as a collection of technical data and the history of previous interventions and a photogrammetric mapping of the structure.

The aqueduct, currently in use, carries the irrigation water from the Otura ditch as it passes through the Arroyo de la Calera, and as you can see in the keystone of its central arch we find an interesting mask and a Latin cross.

This is a clear example of how the continued use of these heritage elements generally helps to preserve and maintain them to this day.
