“So well preserved and a part of the landscape of Evora”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

It was wonderful thing to stumble across this aqueduct part way down the hill in Evora. We followed it to the town walls and after we left Evora we drove along part of the way. Cars run between its supports and people live under it. So beautiful to photograph in the late afternoon and imagine all the life it has seen since it was built.

“An interesting and unusual excursion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

The aqueduct starts beyond the Praca do Giraldo, at first only about 6ft high, but steadily gaining height until there are houses built under the arches, and it sails over the city walls to stride across the countryside,

The aqueduct now has a footpath running alongside it outside the city walls, with interpretive boards covering history, geology etc - an attractive walk through countryside as well as interesting history.

If you're interested in such things, it is worth also going into the Museo d'Agua.

“Spectacular aqueduct that's part of the town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

This striking aqueduct isn't just in the town, it's part of the town: it rises up from eye level, gets up high enough that stores and houses are built into it, then lifts even more above all that before heading out into the countryside. Take the time to find where it begins and follow it out past the city walls - it's well worth it!
