You can't miss this acqueduct and its beautiful arches as you drive into town. As far as I could tell, the acqueduct center is underground and can't be visited. But this structure is great for pictures in the early evening against the pink clouds with the Cerro La Bufa in the background. The grass area across the street from Parque... More

Beautifully restored, magnificent and photogenic site. Have a look at it in the morning and in late afternoon. Those pink stones, the way it was constructed and the sheer greatness of the structure mad a great impression. Make sure you look at it from inside the hotel Quinta Real - a true architectural gem in itself.

You can not escape passing the Aqueduct as the main street passes underneath. This aqueduct is interesting because it reminds one of the fact that before the common practice of bringing water to the home by means of underground pipes, water was delivered to citizens by means of an aqueduct. Europe used this system for generations and the same design... More

I dont know what year it was constructed. I am assuming it was built during the times Mexico was under the rule of the Spanish Empire. When i first saw the Zacatecas Aqueduct it sort of reminded me of the one I saw in Segovia Spain.

This aqueduct is located between a beautiful park and the Quinta Real Hotel. It is well preserved and will serve as a lovely backdrop for phots.

While this has been maintained, and repaired due to its age its amazing to think this was made just so the town could have water. We stay at the Quinta Real, which is at the base of this and the night view is nothing short of amazing.

Well preserved aqueduct in a pleasant part of town. Worth combining with the museum de Francisco Goitia and the old bull ring (now part of a 5 star hotel close to the aqueduct)

This has to be part of your walking tour. The colonial architecture is impressive and it is accompanied by a lovely, peaceful park. Nearby is a lovely church that is worth the walk up the hill to view.
