Water Works Interpretive Center – Carmen Aljibe del Rey

LoadingAdd to My Granada

Carmen del Aljibe del Rey is located in a building with a large garden and a number of smaller outbuildings. The largest cistern in the Albaicín district is located under the courtyard next to the main building, which lends the centre its name.

With a capacity of 300 cubic metres, the cistern used to be supplied by a branch of the Aynadamar irrigation channel from Alfacar.

The centre is divided into various sections:

- Water and agricultural landscapes: water in agriculture, with a particular focus on irrigation in Andalucía.

- Water in motion: the traditional mills and water as a source of energy.

- The Aynadamar irrigation channel and the traditional water supply to the Albaicín district.

- The network of cisterns in the Albaicín district.

- Historical development of Granada around the Río Darro.
