Water and Textile Museum

The Textile and Water Museum is located in the old monumental water tanks, which collect and store water from the Canal de la Sèquia. They were built between 1861 and 1865 by the master builder Marian Potos and they were used to provide the first water distribution network in the city.

The building has three identical and independent tanks of 800m2 each, covered by two stone vaults supported on the retaining walls and a central row of arches and pillars, covering an area of 2.400m2 and 12.000m3 capacity of water.

The museum houses two permanent exhibitions: "the ribbon industry" and "the Sèquia canal and the water".
