The aquaduct is omni-present and beautiful, especially as they have put buildings and houses in the 'holes' of the aquaduct. You can also walk along the aquaduct for about 9km. A pity you have to walk along a busy road for 1.2 km...

This is an interesting one as it has become embedded into the city (photos show this). The ending portion of the aqueduct has buildings built into it and the earlier portion has a section where a main road goes through it.

Do not expect to see Pont du Gard or Segovia Aqueduct: Aqueduto de Aqua de Prata does not date back to the Roman days; it was erected in 1532 to supply water to the centre of Evora. It is 11km long and very well preserved....More

We only saw the end that runs into the city - with many homes built beneath it's quite fascinating. One can hike beside it but we did not do that

What wasn't clear to me from other reviews was that finding remnants of the aqueduct was more interesting than seeing the part that's most prominent and tallest just outside the walled city. Use the map from the tourism office to find the remnant of it...More

As drove into Evora, we could see the aqueduct and it appeared to go on for a long time. We drove under it in a couple of places and stopped to get photos. It appears to be well maintained.
