    Integrated in the Aqueduct of the Silver Water, it was conceived to collect and distribute the aqueduct?s water. It was built in the 16th century by the architect Miguel de Arruda. Of classical design, it ressembles a small rectangular temple set on a foundation and formed by columns with no structural function. The tem columns on the three elevations ar embedded in the box and surmounted by a simple architrave.
