It is worth the drive out of town to see this roman aqueduct, that was built to bring water to the city of Tarragona. The entrance is free, and then it's a nice little walk in the forest to reach the aqueduct. You can climb up the hill and walk inside from one end to the other.

The history was amazingly easy to touch. You could see Roman, Visigoth, Moor, medieval and 18th century changes. Disliked that the Spanish always seemed to over salt their dishes.

We arrived at the upper car park with expectations of an organized tour at 10am and 12 noon. However there was no-one there. After calling the phone number on the board, 10 minutes later Eduardo arrived and took us on our personal tour (there was no-one booked that day). He took us through the park and explained the history, flora... More

It's a few Kms outside of the centre so you need a car. You pass through suburban areas and watch out for the turning because you have very little warning! it's a walk up hill on rough'ish paths so not ideal for anyone with walking difficulties. It's stunningly large and you can walk across if you wish. When we visited... More

A few years back, two of my friends and I rented a car in Spain and drove about 8,000 kilometers in 12 days. On our way to Costa del Sol, we stopped by Tarragona and came across this imposing structure off the highway. Ponte del Diable aqueduct is one of those amazing feat of engineering and architectures left by the... More

It is outside of Tarragona on highway so you can drive there. Dont know how you would do it other than taking your own car or tour bus as it isnt... More

We enjoyed all of it. All of the Roman buildings are walkable. It's just a great place and so clean.

This is a very well-preserved aqueduct in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. We just returned from a visit to Pont du Garde, and this one in Tarragona was fascinating as well. You see a view of it from the main highway into Tarragona, off the side of the road. But you can venture on top of it and below it, if... More

This is a must - see. We took the local bus here for just over a euro. It was an amazing sight. We walked under and over the aqueduct and posed for some photos which look incredible. It was a lot higher than i expected.
