The history of humankind always provides examples of the ingenuity that is compelled by necessity. Visiting the Aqueduto da Agua de Prata during my time in Evora reminded me of that. This aqueduct, that was completed in 1537 after a five year period of construction, was needed to assist in providing water to Evora. This aqueduct utilized a bridge structure with columns that directed the water to Evora. I was amazed to see how well maintained this more than 500 year old structure is. In the midst of some of the modernity of Evora, this ancient edifice still stands tall.

This is a hugely impressive structure but very difficult to appreciate properly.
The part going through the town has workshops and houses built between the arches and then it crosses a decidedly dodgy car park before then being bisected by four lanes of traffic. After that it disappears into the fields beyond.
There was no info we saw about it and I wouldn't fancy walking around the area at night, although I confess I am paranoid!
The structure is medieval but incorporated the original Roman structure. The second level is now missing although there are traces of it on some columns. It's a shame there isn't at least a viewing area to make the most of this historical tourist attraction.

Seemingly treated like a piece of furniture by the local authorities even now, not just in the past when arches were filled in with buildings. It exists, roads run underneath it, alongside it, not a lot of attention is paid to it but it was built over 500 years ago, stretches for 9 kilometres taking water to the central square in Evora. A truly amazing feat of engineering for its time. It would be good to have a nice stretch that isn’t part of a road or a worked field where you can get close, maybe appreciate the water still running etc not just have it practically ignored.

My wife and I spent a couple of weeks in Evora. Great place to roam around and to use a home base for visiting the Alentejo area as well as the Extremadura area in Spain, which is just a stone's throw away.
Historical sites from Roman times including the aqueduct are excellent places to visit. There are also monoliths from a much older era to explore. Evora has lots to offer.

An incredible feat of engineering,Évora's aqueduct travels miles from the spring into the city. You can walk the length of it at the base (starting about a mile out of the city and taking roads where it goes underground) or just part. In soaring temperatures we walked about a quarter of it.

First off we found it extremely difficult to find a map or any directional signage. Lots on the internet about the history but not the route. There is one posted here. Take the Lisbon road out of the city. Just past the convent the aqueduct crosses the road. Here you can pick up point A on the map and walk through countryside along the aqueduct itself.

Take water and wear sturdy shoes and long trousers. The path is obvious but not well trodden - so you're fighting through long grass (and beautiful butterflies) for a lot of it. There are also a lot of (noisy) dogs right along the path - they're behind fences but it can make you jump the first time one barks next to you!

In Évora itself you can pick up the aqueduct just inside the city walls from the Lisbon road. Lots of houses and shops built into it along he way. At times you'll think you've lost it only to find it pops up again further into the city.

If you walk from the town center, you may not immediately notice that you're walking next to a Roman aqueduct because it starts out less than 2 meters high before the street begins to slope downward until the aqueduct is towering 10-20 meters above your head! Along the Rua dos Canos, each aqueduct arch serves as the side walls of homes and shops, It's a great example of how ancient architect has been repurposed for modern needs. The street itself is quiet and away from the relative noise of the town center, so it makes for a lovely, enchanting stroll.

What wasn't clear to me from other reviews was that finding remnants of the aqueduct was more interesting than seeing the part that's most prominent and tallest just outside the walled city. Use the map from the tourism office to find the remnant of it starting near the main square (Praca de Giraldo) and then follow it through the streets. Sometimes it's not very obvious because it's incorporated into facades. Eventually you'll see homes that were built between the archways. Fascinating.

While it's not the biggest aqueduct it is one that is worth seeing. It does not date back to Roman times but still interesting.

It is interesting to see how the housing was incorporated into the acqueduct. It was built between 1533 and 1537.
