Syndic of the Acequia Rovella
Layout of Rovella is widely detailed in the work of J. Llop , where we give full information about indicating also the different arms of Favara ditch that went deep into the city to assist in irrigation and cleaning of sewers of the city of six hundred.
However, like Rovella after crossing the city, pouring water into the Valladar and split into different branches , irrigated orchards Ruzafa to go eventually drain into the river.
The old weir Rovella was next to the bridge of Campana in the bed of the old channel . Its layout , underwent a remarkable change to be deleted which penetrated the city by the Crown Portal and continue a new section here was initiated following the street Guillem de Castro , Xativa and Colon to reconnect with your old layout in Hernán Cortés and the street , across the great highway Marqués del Turia, by Master Gozalbo street and Avenue of the Kingdom of Valencia, achieve avenue Peris y Valero , and Aleixandre Pedro street , arriving at the square of Montolivet . From here, the canal runs along Avenida del Saler and leftovers are collected by the ditch of Valladar , after traveling about 10,000 meters. At the intersection of Antonio Ferrandis , ditch the Valladar has a couple of branches : a branch to the west, serving the Pou Row , and another to the south which is the row Inquisició .
This Valladar ditch the old watering the gardens of Nazareth , now severely depleted by the urbanization process , goes to the games of La Punta ( d'En Silvestre ) and El Peru to its mouth in the new river channel.
