The Canal of Castile was built to ease the wheat grain transport from Castile to the northern harbours and to other markets from there.

when railroads were built in northern Spain in the nineteenth century, the canal turned into the backbone of a huge irrigation system due to its relative inefficiency as a means of transport.
