The aqueduct is a must see and it is interesting to see how the locals have used the space to build houses and stores. We drove around the city to see the aqueduct. Feel free to skip if you have seen the aqueduct in Segovia...More

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.

Fascinating to see how buildings were incorporated into the ancient aqueduct. It was amazing to wander the streets and take pictures of the town.

Take a moment when in Evora to look at the aqueduct that still serves the city. It is an example of superior engineering that the Romans were known for. They did not build anything on the cheap or halfway. Wish we had that kind of...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.

Although the aqueduct is not the original Roman one they used the original stones to rebuild it when it was torn down by the Vandals in medieval times. Houses literally sit under the arches and get smaller and smaller as the arches drop in size...More

There are two highlights of Evora's 16th century aqueduct, one in the town itself and the other north of the town. The aqueduct was constructed in the 1500's to bring badly needed water from a river a few miles out of town to the Fountain...More
