Dique 24 romantic dam in the middle of the nature

Between Cáñar and the neighbouring village to the east, Soportújar, lies a remarkable dam across the deep gorge of the Chico river.

This is known as "Dique 24" and was built in 1942 to control the destructive flash floods that the Rio Chico sometimes unleashes.

The GR7 footpath crosses the stream just above the dam.
