Don't miss this fabulous aqueduct for lack of a car. We use public transport whenever possible. Convenient busses go to Pont del Diable. It's only about 4km from Tarragona on a divided highway, but don't try walking. The last kilometer has no sidewalk. Catch either line 5 or 85 at the triangular bus stop on the Placa Imperial Tarraco traffic... More

Wow! Very impressive, and you can even walk across it. There is a pull off from the west bound highway, but better yet is to check out the park that is just north of the highway. Seems to be a popular place for mountain bikers and hikers. Totally worth a short stop. Free, easy parking.

If you've read my bio and seen my reviews, you'll know I love history and am sucker for anything ancient and/or Roman. Haven't visited the great aqueduct in Segovia the prior year, I could not pass up an opportunity to visit this magnificent structure in the heart of Catalan, minutes from Tarragona. I will not spoil it with words because... More

This totally amazed me. It is around 2000 years old and still standing. It used to carry water into Tarragona but now is actually a walk way, you can (and I did) walk from one side to the other. Is about 2 miles outside Tarragona so you will need transport of some sort to get to it. ..................................................................................................................................

One of the best that I have seen, and you can even walk on it. You can also see it from different perspectives, so great picture opportunities here. You get to learn how the Romans brought the water from a nearby river to Tarraco. A must see!

There are amazing ruins to be found all over Spain. What makes so many of the aqueducts impressive is that many of them were functioning water sources into recent times

This was a fun stop on our way to Tarragona. We admired the structure from below and then climbed to the top and walked about two thirds of the way across the upper level. Many walkers and joggers use this pathway across the top of the aqueduct as well as the park below. Reminiscent of the Pont du Gard in... More

I recently visited the Roman aqueduct and I was pleasantly surprised by the well-preserved state of the entire bridge. Hidden in the midst of nature, it is an ideal place to take your family on a hike and enjoy a day out in the open air. The aqueduct was built in the 1st century B.C. in order to supply water...
