Water Dams in Cádiz

Arroyo del Fresnillo Dam – Grazalema

The Arroyo del Fresnillo Dam & Reservoir is located just few minutes fromt the andalusian town of Grazalema and was built on the bed of the Arroyo del Fresnillo, a tributary on the right bank of the river Guadalete.

Gravity dam whith a height from foundation of 27,68 m and a coronation length of 106 m. The dam has a central spillway with a span of 11,30 m length.

The Arroyo del Fresnillo Reservoir belongs to the Cuenca Hidrografica del Guadalquivir and has a capacity of 0,276 hm3.

With privileged views of Grazalema, the Arroyo del Fresnillo Dam seems to be one of the privileged watchtowers of our surroundings and an outstanding footprint of this water landscape.

Fed by the Arroyo del Fresnillo, a prominent tributary of the Guadalete River, it has been ‘feeding’ the population and the neighboring towns of Benaocaz and Villaluenga del Rosario with water since 2002.

Belonging to the Guadalquivir Hydrographic Basin, it has a capacity of 0.276 cubic hectometres and its privileged location, at 943 meters above sea level, gives us some of the most spectacular views of the town and of that territory of intense greens that, little by little, enters the Sierra de las Nieves (Málaga).
