The acueducto romano (Roman aqueduct) was an extraordinary work of engineering of the first century BC by Balbo from Cadiz, who managed to supply water from the Tempul spring, more than fifty kilometers from Cadiz to the new town which were the neighborhoods of Santa María and the Pópulo.

To our day and age have survived, exposed in the gardens of Varela, some remains of the aqueduct found in Cortadura beach. We can also see the ruins of a building, also from Roman times, with an arcaded courtyard.
