Museo del Agua de Lanjarón

Posted by Sophie Russell-Ross in Blog, La Alpujarra 30 Nov 2014


The Water Museum, designed by Juan Donimgo Santos, offers a fascinating look at the historical relationship between water and architecture in the region dating back to the Moors. The very landscape and history of Lanjarón itself, famous across Spain for its spring water and Spa, has been shaped by water.

The architect was commissioned by the Lanjarón Town Council to build the museum by the river on the site of an old slaughter house, which was previously a watermill. The purpose of the museum is to raise awareness of the idea that water as a scarce and precious natural resource that must be protected for future generations.


Open: Wednesday – Monday 10:00-13:30

Entrance: €3 or €1.50 for over 65s, under 16s and groups
