Presa de la Albuera

Presa de la Albuera.

down towards La Lanchita riverbank, there is the Albuera, which is the water dam that was ordered by the Bishop of Badajoz, Amador Merino Malaguilla, for the convent of the Conceptionists.

The wall of the dam is of masonry. Attached to it we find one of the hydraulic mills that are still preserved, and that at that time played a very important role. They served to grind the flour. The benefits obtained by the utility of the water of the reservoir were administered by the religious Conceptionists.
