The municipality of Albanchez is repairing the ‘Arcos de la Ramba del Pozo’ Aqueduct thanks to the investments of the Provincial Council of Almeria. The vice-president of the Provincial Institution, Fernando Giménez, and the mayor, Amador López, have visited the surroundings of this heritage jewel to check ‘in situ’ the improvement works that are being carried out with direct economic assistance.

The works will enhance the value of a property which could date back to the Modern Age and which has become the main monument of the municipality. The work will involve the installation of scaffolding, work to secure the masonry block, the insertion of fibreglass rods to reinforce the structure and the beautification of the work to restore it to its original appearance.

Fernando Giménez stressed the importance of an intervention that has a clear objective: “To safeguard the heritage of the province of Almería and in this case the monumental emblem of Albanchez. We visited the works of a project in which the Diputación has been at the side of the Town Council from the very beginning. First with the fantastic work carried out by the technicians of the Area of Assistance to Municipalities who assessed the damage and carried out the consequent technical reports, and now with the execution of the restoration works”.

For his part, the mayor stressed that “the Aqueduct is the emblem and symbol of our town, it was deteriorated with cracks in the last arch due to the rains. Thanks to the help of the Diputación we are going to be able to restore it so that it can be conserved in the best possible condition. We are very grateful for the response and support that the Diputación has given us from the beginning.

The Diputación has assumed 100% of the cost of the restoration of this property, which forms part of the heritage of the province. In this sense, Giménez emphasised the Institution’s commitment to Historical Heritage: “It is an essential element for promoting tourism in the municipalities, creating employment and wealth and, furthermore, a source of opportunities”, he explained.
