A tour through the king’s water holding

To learn more about the 15th century water systems in Granada and the Albacin, we took a private tour through the Alijibe del Rey. Aljibes in Spain are the main water supply and storage “tanks” for the surrounding areas. For the more wealthy residents, the water supply could be routed to the palaces. As for the lower class residents, they would have to fetch their water from the port of the aljibe. Please see the attached video for a look inside of the Aljibe del Rey.
