Enjoy the view from the tallest arch of the world, with 65meters in hight! (Keep in mind that there is only one entrance from the one side of the bridge) The view is amazing and there are many options for mountain walks at both sides...More

The Aqueduto das Aguas Livres is a spectacular building worth to visit. Considering the length and the heights, this is a great architectural achievement. And a nice view into the valley …

This is a very impressive 300 year old aqueduct spanning the valley on the northwest side of the city. It is a very long span and the structure is very dramatic. It is well built and survived the earthquake. This is a "driveby" site--you do...More

You can spot it from many places in the city I don't know if you can visit it, but it is worth seeing it even from further away. Do not let yourselves fooled, this is not built by the Romans, it is rather new aqueduct...More

I'd heard about this aqueduct before arriving, and only realised how close it was to my hotel after catching glimpses while on the train to Sintra. Even more embarrassing is that it actually terminates within a 10 minute walk of said hotel. Not that old,...More

No need to book. It's not a very busy attraction. In fact I doubt that it is possible to book except for big groups.
