Photographer's Note

The aqueduct of Xalpa, also known as Arcos del sitio (arches of the site), was built entirely in stone, it is 430 meters long, with 43 arches on four levels and a maximum height of 62 meters.
Its construction began in the early 18th century, under the direction of the Jesuit. The works were interrupted in 1767 due to their expulsion from the New Spain that year. Finally was completed in 1854.
