One of a kind. Good to see the marvel of building abilities from a hundreds of years ago.just go and see and take some pictures. Not far from the shore . Close to the shopping centres. Nice walk close to the Archeological Museum.

Located in the old town, this aqueduct was built in the 9th century to supply water to the monastery of St-benedict. It is popularly known as "Devil's bridge" and was said to have been built in one night with the help of demons by the Salerno magician and alchemist of the 12th century Pietro Barliario. Popular superstition also holds that walking under the arches from nightfall to dawn would bring youin contact with demons or evil spirits.
It is in Via Arce that this aqueduct is the highest standing at 21 meters.

I actually stumbled upon this beauty while I was making my way back to my B & B. I didn’t have it as a saved item but I am glad I saw it.

It's not the reason to go to Salerno. The section still standing has been there since the 9th century. Ok, I absolutely love this type of old structure, but you look up, you see it and that's it. You're done. So, yes, go see it, but it is not the sole reason to come to Salerno. This architecture brought water from a spring outside of town.

It is not just one aqueduct, but a confluence of them. It is worth it to walk under and around them. Not much explanation though.

A well kept and robust 9th century aqueduct which served to bring waters to the city from the nearby hill of Bonadies (where the castle stands).

These Aqueducts are parts of the city's history. They are huge, big edifices but they are not something that you HAVE TO see, because they are in the middle of the city and if you just walk around you will find them. I would be happier if these edifices would be highlighted somehow.

While Strolling around in Duomo, saw the masterpiece of architecture lost among the modern surroundings amongst the apartment buildings filled with graffiti, still don't understand the need to deface a building. A shame actually.
I would arrange a special outing to see it, but nice if you in the area

We just stumbled across it while wandering around. It’s a nice one, with multiple levels and almost seems like an entry portal.
