Medieval Aqueduct

The Arab world masterly resolved how to transport water from one place to another. The Aqueduct of Segorbe, dated between the 11th and 12th centuries, is another example of its exquisite works of engineering. However, the part which can still be seen today with its ogival arches belongs to the 14th century. One of its pointed arches was removed in the 19th century in order to widen the main road of the time. An iron channel was placed to allow the water flow from the Fountain of Hope.
