The internet says Archimedes broached the idea of slope, but the actual formulation didn’t occur until Descartes. Whatever the case, the ancient Roman engineers must have had an idea about the mathematical slope and must have had some kind of tool to help them in assuring an accurate slope in the construction of the aqueduct. (I. e. For every mile of length, the aqueduct would drop horizontally about 1 foot). Making the whole thing even more challenging and impressive was the building of the heights of the sidewalls of the top section (transporting the water) to correctly correspond with the slope. (I. e. Less slope would mean taller sidewalls (to avoid excessive spillage of water) and more slope with faster running water could mean shorter sidewalls of the top carrying water ditch section. In any case, it’s impressive engineering around the archaic time of Jesus.

It seems amazing how much of this huge structure still remains. At the end nearest the old city there are information boards about this and the adjacent bathhouse with much in English. Visit when seeing the very nearby Circo Romano. There is no charge to see the aquaduct

We wanted to see Roman sites and Merida doesn't disappoint. We loved stopping at the Aueducto. Plenty of parking right there. Free to wander around. Only a couple people out and about enjoying it and they were more locals than tourists. Merida is a great town to visit & can probably see all the Roman sites within 3 hours.

Superb & free! In nice public park. Note the many beak-snapping storks , sitting on their nests, or drinking from the river by one of the several Roman bridges.

The original Roman acqueduct from the 1st century had approximately 5 kilometres. The remains have 800 metres but still impress. Built of granite and red bricks, the arches are 25 metres high. Bit out of center but worth a visit.

This aquaduct is gigantic. Topped with stork nests. Very impressive to see and to think how they built it. At the end there's also a Roman bridge. It's in a park so nice to have a walk about if the weather is good.

We saw this at night when it was illuminated. Very impressive. In a park, so it is easy to visit. Very impressive that it is still there. Large bird nests sit atop the aquaduct. See it at night for a great picture.

Worth seeing day and night, when it’s illuminated. It is an impressive sight and you can view it really well since it is set in parkland.
