Alpandeire – Municipal Laundry Area

The Municipal Laundry Area is located on the outskirts of the town of Alpandeire, on the Camino de los Huertos. It can be easily accessed by Arroyo de la Fuente Street.

This laundry area was built in 1954 on the edge of the village, next to the road of los Huertos. Until the houses had running water and intil washing machines became widely used, this modest laundry area was a great help to the local women who had previously had to wash their clothes in the Fuente, the nearest streem, or in the Handeque, a small stream to the east of the village.

Joined to this construction there is a trough known as the Fuente del Lavadero (Fountain of the Laundry area), that collected and used any surplus water over.

From its semi-circular arched windows you can see a beautiful view of the town of Alpandeire and the Church of San Antonio de Padua.
