This factory was built on the banks of one of the arms of the old Bay-Caleta channel and remained active until the early fourth century AD. It was organized around a spacious courtyard, under whose surface an aljibe stood where graffiti of the lighthouse was found which is currently kept in the Museum of Cadiz.

The preserved area is an area of covered pools of different sizes, as was usual at the time, of hydraulic concrete, with reinforced angles to avoid leaks and a central recess for cleaning it.
