La pedrera Reservoir

Dam and reservoir access

The geographical environment of the reservoir is densely populated, and the nearest most important city is Orihuela, which is about 8 km away; it is about 20 km from Murcia capital following the route of the former Murcia to Alicante main road N-340a. The dam can be reached from Murcia following the road going from the right riverbank of the Segura river that connects the capital with Beniaján, Torreagüera, turning off at the Cabezo de la Plata signpost in the direction of Torremendo where, before reaching this municipality, a left turn must be taken to reach Dike III. The A-333 road runs along this dike leading to the main dam, Dikes I and II and to the Administration building. Another option is to continue through Zeneta until Hurchillo and from there to turn right to reach Dike III.

The nearest railway station is Orihuela, 8 km away, on the Cartagena-Alicante-Barcelona RENFE line.
