This is just outside the castle/convent and is a marvellous sight/feat of building. Just turn left out of the castle and there it is.

Still standing strong after all this time, this impressive aquaduct, built by the Romans, is still in a remarkably good state of repair. It is free to park up and walk up the steps. You can imagine people in Roman times gathering water from the...More

The aqueduct is one of the most important monuments in Tomar. It's majestic in the architecture point of view. And talking about the view: going to the top and walking in the aqueduct is an adventure!

It's a tough walk out of town for very little payoff. It's not like it's Roman or anything. It brought water to the monks.

This construction dates from the XVIth-XVII centuries. The construction started in 1593 and it was concluded in 1614. It is in a good state and the landscape is beautiful!

Not pont du gard, but interesting in it's own way. 2 Different kinds of arches, and there are towers at each end, which you can go into and walk out on the aqueduct. Not for acrophobes.
