Canal de los franceses

LoadingAdd to My Granada

This construction was built in the 19th century, in the period of the Napoleonic invasion, hence its name ‘los Franceses’. Until recently it was used to supply drinking water to the municipality. Three main structures of the canal are still preserved: the first is what is locally known as ‘The Towers’, which are the pillars that were supporting the pipeline and that have now disappeared. The second is the Line of the Bridge, an aqueduct with arches allowing water to be collected despite the unevenness caused by a ravine. And finally, the House of Cigarrón, which housed the guard keeper of the canal.
