Access to the dam and reservoir

Doña Ana Reservoir installations are best accessed from Murcia using the N-340 main road, which joins this town to Lorca. In Alcantarilla one turns right onto the C-415 regional main road which leads to Mula, and there one takes the old C-415 road to El Niño. Here one takes the C-6 road, towards Zarzadilla de Totana, and after about 9 kilometres an access track branches off to the left to the reservoir’s left bank. This access route is the most direct and in better condition as on the right bank the track which leads to the track to El Carreño can only be used by specialized vehicles.

To get to the dam’s crest, on the left bank, one takes a short dirt track which branches off the C-6 between the villages of El Niño and Zarzadilla de Totana, both in the province of Murcia.

The left bank can be accessed using a 4X4 using country tracks

The nearest towns to the reservoir are El Niño de Mula and Mula.
