    The Aqueduct of Aguila has become a reminder of the extremely successful sugar cane industry that was predominant in this land years ago. [photo 6 showing the main sugar mill]

    The aquaduct is 40 metres tall and 90 metres long. It was built in 1880 to ensure the water supply to the irrigated land on the Barranco de Maro designated to grow sugar cane. However now, although the brick structure remains, it needs rehabilitation to ensure its preservation.

    At the end of 2005, the monuments owner, Sociedad Azucarera Larios S.A, granted it to the Council thanks to an agreement. In 2006, the mayor said that they would carry out the restoration of the monument in collaboration with a private company and the Andalucian Government. Since then, the project has not progressed and it seems that the Government of Andalucia is waiting for the Council to set the exact amount that needs to be invested.

    Today the Aqueduct remains in use supplying water to nearby farmland.
