PROJECT: The aqueduct of the Ex Hacienda of El Hospital in the city of Cuautla, has been the object of an enhancement by AMVIAC in collaboration with local authorities, national and international civil associations, professional associations and many other actors since 2019. More than 20 volunteer camps have been held in this aqueduct with the participation of more than 450 volunteers. The tasks carried out by the volunteers have been in the field of architecture, civil engineering, history, biology, archeology, carpentry, among others. The project aims to involve the local community in this enhancement and generate tourist, economic, cultural and social development in the region.
It is a construction from the s. XVII of 1.5 kilometers of development in which the use of limestone and partition is observed, joined with mortar of slaked lime and river sand, as well as scraps of the same rock. Its formation is, basically, a succession of semicircular arches throughout its development.
This construction belongs to the monumental complex of the Hospital hacienda, where you can still see a large part of its buildings, such as the chacuaco (chimney), some rooms that have ceilings with Catalan vaults and lanterns, magnificent windows with large blacksmith, its perimeter fence and a small chapel.
