Quite an impressive Roman aqueduct just outside (and inside) the city walls of Evora. It is easy to find. Worth a quick visit. It is still said to be functioning.

The aqueducts made to bring water to the town, a wonderful case of town planning. Must see, but most possibly you will anyway come across them as you walk through the alleys of the town.

Inside the city wall the aqueduct has been incorporated into the fabric of neighbourhoods to the point where homes and businesses have been built under its arches. Outside the walls the aqueduct runs for kilometres.

The aqueduct of Évora is very impressive. In many places, Rome included, you will see a section of an aqueduct and know it will end after only a short distance. In Évora, it seemingly never ends. I wish I had the time to walk the...More

The people have build their houses under and around the pillars of the aqueduct. On more than 8km they had only 21m hight difference and made it working.
