AcequiaSistema de RiegoObra de ingeniería hidráulica construida en la época de la colonia por el año de (1702). Es un conjunto de canals de conducción de agua que sirve a un sistema de riego por medio de acequias que funciona en la actualidad. El uso principal de esta obra de ingeniería hidráulica es el riego de campo y la utilización de los planos y niveles del terreno para la distribución y conducción del agua, por lo que suelen distribuirse en estos canales. La alimentación del caudal de las acequias se realiza principalmente mediante una pequeña presa, pequeña retención de agua, que deriva el cauce a estas. Es muy relajante recorrer el camino empedrado rodeado de vegetación pasando por el acueducto Los Arcos, la zona de Bóvedas hasta llegar al inicio de su cause (sic, cauce).
