Ñora Waterwheel in Murcia. Spain The Ñora Waterwheel was built in 1936 on the spot where the former wooden and ceramic waterwheel from 1399, was located. The new waterwheel, made of metallic materials, has a diameter of 13 meters and a main axis connected to spokes that end in a main crown. A number of tendons keep the waterwheel balanced.
 
The waterwheel is part of the same structure as a 220-meter aqueduct, which has a height of nine meters in some areas, is built mostly with solid bricks and distributes water to neighboring orchards.
