The aqueduct is part of a network of hydraulic constructions that take advantage of the waters of the “l’Escaleta” and the “Canyeret” basins to irrigate the nearest terraces. The aqueduct is supported by a series of four almost pointed arches, therefore it could have been built between the end of the 13th century and the beginning of the 14th. It brings water to the vicinity of the urban nucleus, where this flow is added to that of the Font Nova which, at the same time, supplies water to the municipal washing machine. By means of a counter aqueduct located in the lower part of its structure and which is currently piped, it provides the remains of water to another pool. There are indications that the aqueduct could have supplied the castle with water through a system of hydraulic pumps.
