Bathrooms Hispano-Muslim Benejí
Benejí baths respond to the typical installation of public bathroom Nazari, whose basic structure are aligned parallel three ships attached to its sides, covered with barrel vaults, and interconnected by central holes in the walls where they are fitted. The functional organization is simple and therefore this model enjoyed great success in many places, mainly in rural areas such as the present one. Auxiliary units, input scope hall and home to heat production, are generally simpler construction and attached to the main buildings. In our case there are no data on the situation of these auxiliary facilities. Usually the bathrooms were located next to a source of supply, in this case by the ditch-called "toilets", from the source of Alcaudique. The water in the ditch raft pour on top of ground short of square (with just over 11 m. Aside) that by being wedged between the terraces and the road mark the dimensions of the lot. The raft that follows is in contact with the bath and is built much later, probably built over the entrance area and lobby, which therefore have completely disappeared. The building itself is set back just over two meters above the alignment of the access road, probably around the entire building. More information: Ship 3 x 9 ft ruins of one of the few medieval baths county whose remains have survived. They had several ships, which was attached to the preserved ancient water raft, also of Arab construction, responsible for supplying the bathrooms. The hall is built in concrete joined by lime mortar. In the outer right wall start a vault indicates to us that this ship was part of a set is preserved. The interior has an elongated vave walls covered with plaster. It is covered by a barrel vault, using the same rig for the rest of the set. In it are placed dor arches that help support the thrust of this. The arches are supported on pilasters square base paths, which start directly from the arches. In this series of dome-shaped skylights truncated pyramid, which served to illuminate the interior of the vessel open. The dome has no qrco midpoint but legeramente lowered.

Cisterns Medievas Villavieja
Medieval existing cisterns within Campus Villavieja constitute a representative sample of what were the systems, and public storage facilities and water distribution in the traditional settlements. The cisterns will form a key for the use of water from the base population. These simple and efficient facilities put us in touch with the past of the ancient city and its operation. These are public buildings of simple construction, but of great strength which has allowed them to survive over the years. The population has always valued its meaning and should be considered as such.
