Pozo de Los Padrones

El Pozo de Los Padrones is a well combined with a gallery drilled into the cliff that allows access to an underground aquifer that supplies most of the water consumed on El Hierro. This construction is a great feat of engineering since it brought to a close dramatic times of drought for the islanders, one of the islands that most thirst has suffered in the past in the Canary Archipelago.
