This aqueduct main function was to supply water to the west side of the city. The water intake point or caput aquae was placed in the ProserpinaReservoir, where driving was born that snaked along nearly 12 miles. The beginning,in the vicinity of the dam, driving was done by an underground tunnel, excavated in rock. At the end of the driving, she had to save the river Albarregas, for which they had to build a series of arches (arcuationes), which are the most monumental part ofthis construction, which ended in the hill of Calvary, where it appeared the tower ofdistribution (castellum aquae).
