Hi Proz,
In reply to the answerer of my previous question the only context that I can give is the whole sentence which goes like this:
Con el fin de evitar posibles golpes de ariete, al final del tunel se cuenta con un tunel vertical o almenara de 10 metros de diametro que sale a la superficie en trayecto de 160 metros de altura.
That's what I've got!
Perhaps you copuld also help with my previous question under the heading of trabajos de roceria! A bit cheeky of me really! But thanks!

Larousse gives "beacon"; but I'd suggest tower or vertical
Explanation:
shaft. Almenara comes from al-minara (the minaret). Adjust to context.
