The Old Roman Salted Fish Factory (Antigua Fábrica de Salazones Romana) was built by the banks of one of the arms of the old Bay-Caleta channel, in Cádiz. It remained active until the early fourth century AD. It was organised around a spacious courtyard. Under the surface, a tank (aljibe) stood where graffiti of the lighthouse was found. Currently, these are kept in the Museum of Cadiz.
The preserved place is an area of covered pools of different sizes, as was usual at the time. Of hydraulic concrete, it has reinforced angles to avoid leaks and a central recess for cleaning it.
