Aqueduct

The construction of the aqueduct dates back to the supply problems posed by the Canelles spring, donated to the monastery at the end of the 14th Century XIV; these problems were solved a century later with the donation from a private individual of a branch of the Batlamala spring.

In order to bridge the distance of 5800 metres between the spring and the monastery, the water was first fed through ceramic pipes before being channelled onto the aqueduct at the closest point to the monastery to cross the change in topographical levels.

Therefore, the aqueduct is split into two different levels. The lower level is from the 14th Century with ogival arches constructed from bricks, and the upper level is from the 15th and 16th Centuries, with the same type of arch and the same construction method, but in a smaller size; closer to the monastery the sides of the aqueduct are smooth, only broken by the door that leads to the garden.
