Acueducto de Amaniel

A historical vestige of the former water transport to the city centre.

Amaniel Aqueduct is one of the few vestiges of this type in the city of Madrid. Located in the neighbourhood of Bellas Vistas in the district of Tetuán, its origin dates back to the end of the 19th century. This installation belongs to is Canal de Isabel II (the company that is responsible for managing the city’s water), and water used to be conveyed along its surface towards the city centre.

Formed by three brick galleries with a length of 120 meters, it has 17 semi-circular arches. It provides a rather uncomfortable, uneven surface for pedestrians walking in the area. It can be accessed from the Francos Rodríguez area to Avenida de Reina Victoria, in both directions.
