This runs along the street Pablo Casals in Providencia, over near the ICB medical school. It is used a lot for Photo ops with brides, etc. It really was an acueduct. there are old pictures of that acueduct on line - just sitting there all by itself, nothing next to it - all the way to ZAPOPAN little town...very cool.

Surprise - a real piece of history dating to about 1900, right in the middle of a residential neighborhood. It may not be impressive to touristas looking for tours and plaques and brochures. But as a resident of the surrounding neighborhood of Colonia Providencia, I appreciate the walk along Pablo Casals every day, especially on my way to our corner... More

Is is a straight, bridge type structure, but the was really nothing impressive about it. There were no tours, no plaques explaining the history of the structure... Half of it was behind a construction zone, hopefully they're renovating it... No bathrooms, no stairs/elevators... Here's the real beef - there's no safe place to stand near it and take pictures! So,... More

This area of the city is where the wealthiest people in the entire metro area live. Although it is easy to get to by public transit, a cab cost a few dollars from the Minerva area where many travellers are finding a true value area to stay in. Some of the finest shopping is located near El acueducto at Plaza... More

Love to look at the structure and think about the labor and ability to put this together and make it work for hundreds of years.

While the aqueduct is certainly a beautiful bit of stone work, there's not much else to say. It was built in the early part of the 20th Century to carry water from the water plant in Colomos park to the town of Guadalajara. It's located in the Providencia neighborhood, one of Guadalajara's better neighborhoods. Many of the best restaurants and... More
