Almuñécar Monuments - Roman Arch - Jete (Almunecar)

Roman Arch - Jete
Getting There - Photos

Hidden in the dense fruit trees across from the town of Jete remains a jewel of Roman architecture, an arch from a two thousand year old irrigation aqueduct. The aqueduct is still in use, and adding to its charm is the heavy foliage surrounding it and the moss clinging to the surfaces of the arch. It connects to the large series aqueducts downstream in Almuñécar.

Roman Arch - Jete

To get to the Roman Arch of Jete, leave Almuñécar on the back road to Granada called "Sospiro de los Moros". Follow the signs indicating Jete. In about 3 kilometers you will arrive in Jete. Once in Jete turns left to the river and look for the large municipal playground. The playground overlooks the river. From the playground walk to the river and take a right heading upstream, and then take an immediate left into the opening in the stone walls where a path or very small road begins and runs up into the surrounding fruit groves. The path itself is a delight, lined by ancient stone walls using to mark farming plots in Roman times. The path itself was likely a road back in Roman times. In about five minutes you will arrive at the Roman Arch of Jete.
