This aqueduct is more impressive than the one in Segovia, which is far better known. It is accessible by foot from a rest stop on the autopista. The yellow stones are really impressive in the late afternoon sunlight. It has been well preserved, and you can even walk across the top.

This is an impressively large and remarkably well preserved Roman aqueduct. You can walk across the top of it which is cool (it's quite narrow so it's a bit of a squeeze if you have to pass people going the other way - but totally safe as the walls either side are very thick). Great views from the top and... More

This aqueduct is something amazing, you will be able to do some trekking, picnic and walk over this aqueduct. This is a place you can not miss if you visit Tarragona. Tarragona is the center of many tourist attractions.

Really interesting to hear how the aqueduct worked, the Roman history of the area and why it was built. The condition of the aqueduct and surrounding area is really quite good and appears to be well maintained. Well worth seeing.

A lot of work goes into preserving all these Roman remains, it's worth it as you can imagine life back then.

It was the highlight of Tarragona, getting to tromp across the aqueduct! It's a bus ride out from the inner city with a stop at the bottom of the park. So much fun and awesome history.

Went to Tarrogana for the afternoon from La Pineda. Got the little train that you can hop on hop off. Lovely to see the amphitheatre, cathedral and cloister.

Visited this place as part of a Thomson Tour whilst on holiday in Cambrils, on the outskirts of Salou. Beautiful architecture in a lovely peacefull setting. If you get the chance, take the walk across the top of the aquaduct, from one side to the other. Very narrow path, with not very much in the way of a walls on... More
