This is a very nice aqueduct and it's huge. It sits right outside of the historic center of Elvas. Visit and see the wild flowers that sit outside the walls.

Amazing 400 year old aqueduct, Spectacular sight that cannot be missed, literally. Parking at the base of the tallest part makes it easy to stop and admire this spectacular construction

Elvas is a portuguese lazy town, near the border with Spain, in the Portuguese region of Alto Alentejo.
Is the largest walled city in Europe and a large part of the ancient city was built inside the fortified walls.
The Aqueduto da Amoreira is one of the most beautiful monuments in Elvas and one of its "ex-libris" and was used for a long period to trasnport drinkable water to the walled city, even during the period of the war against Spain, once the Aqueduto is very high and therefore almost undestructible by the ancient weapons.

Very impressive example of historical aquaduct architecture, the sheer scale is amazing to see, difficult to imagine the amount of work it took to build!!

We drove from Sevilla to Lisbon, just had a stop for several minutes in Elvas and we saw an architecture in the Roman time. What an amazing surprise!

This aqueduct is huge - 8km long and 4 stories high. Extremely well preserved structure from 16th century but it took them ages to finish it ,due to the lack of funds.

The further it gets from town, The taller it gets! Best views are from the north side as you can see the change of direction

This aqueduct dominates the city. It is really great that there is so much parking space nearby. You can get out of the car and get a close up of a good portion of the structure for free. It has four levels and is much larger than any other aqueduct we have seen. Had we more time, we might have driven along the road and followed it out of town. Built between 1498 and 1622, it is definitely NOT a Roman aqueduct.
