We took a taxi that was immediately available at the taxi stand right in front of the Tarragona train station. When we asked the driver to go to "Pont del Diable" (aqueduct), he offered to make a round trip. The taxi waited us while we visited the aqueduct for about 20 min. This was a short visit but enough to... More

Overrated. Didn't really like it because I felt as if I could've googled some pictures and seen the same thing. I love history, but the Roman Amphitheater in London wowed me more than this one did.

The aqueduct is stunning - not as big as some others but it is complete and the setting in a wooded valley is perfect. We decided to get to it using public transport. It's easily done but there's some quirks to negotiate. 1. From Tarragon catch the 5 or 85 bus. Timetables - http://emtanemambtu.cat/about/linies/ Generally they are every 15 minutes.... More

My husband took the bus to see this aqueduct: the third one he's visited over the years and all three rate excellent for him, in his judgment as an engineer. He got directions regarding how to go to it on the #5 bus from our hotel on Ramblas. When he arrived at the stop, he was the only person to... More

we drove up and down the exit/ entrance to Tarragona to find this. Then even when we arrived it was difficult tips locate it. Currently this is a lovely location and an amazing feat of engineering. We hope they can keep it that way.

Great piece of ancient architecture, accessible from toll motorway (AP-7) lay-by (south end) or a car park on NA-2420 road (north end of aqueduct). Thick network of paths criss-crossing the area with main long distance trail passing by - this trail is equipped with signs helping out with positioning, if you got lost somewhere in bushes between north and south...

Recently restored, the aqueduct looks fabulous. Not the easiest place to find but worth the search. The attraction offers a decent parking and nice and clear information board, which are only a short walk away from the aqueduct. As much as the path to the base of the structure is nice and clear it is not easy to climb up... More

Plus side - An amazing structure just goes to show how talented the romans actually were. Well worth a visit. Negative side - Hard to find due to lack of road signs. Car park had/is clearly used as a dogging spot due to the underwear and used condoms pointed out to me by my child!

The company responsible for the park maintenance offers 10 eur p.p. night tours to the aqueduct and the adjacent park during the full moon. It is an enchanting walk. There's a romantic park laid by XIX century tarragonian civil engineers, philanthropists and poets brothers Puig i Valls, decayed over time but being slowly restored, and remains of Roman quarries used...
