Photographer's Note

The aqueduct Arcos in Teruel (Spain) is one of the most important engineering works of the Spanish Renaissance. Its construction was made in order to improve the water supply to the city of Teruel, which had hitherto depended on large cisterns built during the last quarter of the fourteenth century to the present Plaza Carlos Castel and several smaller wells and cisterns distributed by other parts of town. The works of the aqueduct began in 1537 and ended in 1554.
