I don't understand where the reviews about bad findability come from, because it's super easy to find. You arrive at a free parking place from where you reach the aqueduct in a 5-minute walk. It is a beautiful Roman aqueduct which is worth a visit. There are different view points and you can cross the aqueduct to the other side. In addition, you can also enjoy hiking in the woods in the surrounding area.

This was my second visit to the aqueduct & I was looking forward to sharing it with my group of extended family. I set up a guided tour 2 months ahead of time with the official guide service, only to have them be a no-show on the day/time agreed for the tour. I called the tour operator who said I was supposed to remind him via email. Anyway, we still walked the aqueduct & it’s worth a trip, even without a guided tour.

We were staying in Tarragona and took a taxi to the aqueduct. We walked about in the woods, crossed the aqueduct and stopped at the cafe in the Casa del Guarda (white stone structure between the aqueduct and the parking lot. The remaining aqueduct is maybe 300 meters long but you can walk across the top where the water flowed. My wife and I then decided to walk back to Tarragona. The hike is pretty easy (runs along the Diable river so it is very flat. The hard part is 1) finding the starting point (first trail on right as you enter from the parking lot through a culvert with low overhead (5 feet 6 inches?); and 2) stay on the aqueduct side of the river. If you do it right, you will exit onto Avenida de Ramon y Cajal (there is a Vienna cafe there. Use it as a navigation point). If you cross the river, you will realize there is not point to exit. The trail goes into the port which is fenced off. You can get onto the Av. de R y C from that side but it is a bit of climb up a weed cover hill. It is an hour on the trail and then another 30 minutes to the end of the New Rambla. In theory, you could do the opposite but the trail seemed to be taking in a lot of offshoots. Going to town, the trail was self explanatory. Not sure about that going the other way. (Give yourself 3-4 hours from getting dropped off at the aqueduct)

What an amazing thing to find beside a Spanish motorway!
So high, so complete and you can walk across the top if you're brave!
However - there is nothing else there - just some hard to walk on terrain and lots of undergrowth. Not suitable for any accessible needs and frankly they could do so much more with it. We have been to the aqueduct at Nimes in France and the Tarragons could learn a few things from them!
Still, there is a free car and no other charges and its a 12 euro taxi ride from the city centre. Well worth the trip, just enjoy the architecture and Roman engineering

Pop yourself in the free carpark but then head straight up through the gates (and not left like us muppets) for about 200 metres.

The area itself is great for discovery but marvel at the beautiful aqueduct and the achievement in building this. What's more you can walk over it after all these years - wonderful.

The aqueduct is impressive in itself, but what surprised us was the extent of the grounds/park. You can easily spend the afternoon here, bring a snack or picnic lunch (only a bathroom, otherwise no amenities). Worth the 20 minute bus ride outside of town.

if you are interested in the traces of the Roman past, then you must have seen this building
Just great. if you are interested in the traces of the Roman past, then you must have seen this building
Just great. And the park suburb is nice to explore. After sightseeing, you can get some rest in the relatively new cafe in the park.

There is a nice walk along the river to the aqueduct from central Tarragona. The walking paths (search on “Paths of Tarragona for a map) are indicated by yellow signs and paint stripes.
The aqueduct is about an hour’s walk along the river - and is well worth the effort (or taxi / bus ride).
Well preserved and part reconstructed, with the channels for water leading into the aqueduct still quite visible. Little signage or information. Wear walking shoes as paths are rough.

Nice aquaduct which you can still cross over the highest level. But car park should be guarded. We had our car window smashed and all luggage stole while we visited. Rather then putting a sign, a camera should be installed.

Large, 3 level, Roman acqueduct. Served the city of Tarraco, capital of Roman Iberia. You can access an aire with parking and a viewing platform for photos off the AP7.

Normally you can go down a path on foot to see from below, but the path was closed for repairs. I think that was the bit the TA computer didn’t like
