Great hike into town along Acquaducto da Prata

A beautiful hike along the historic aqueduct. We got on the trail at about 8 km out of town. A section runs over private land. We had to walk along the road for about 1 km before... read more

Impressive piece of engineering. We tried to walk along it but after walking for about half an hour out of town and still not finding anyway to get off the road gave up. The aqueduct looks quite impressive against the blue sky

A beautiful hike along the historic aqueduct. We got on the trail at about 8 km out of town. A section runs over private land. We had to walk along the road for about 1 km before reconnecting with the trail at the Sao Bento monastery sign post. At this section the trail follows the arched aqueduct, quite impressive.

We stayed in a hotel in Evora next to the aqueduct and hiked foe about 8 mile along it outside the town. The engineering that went into this was incredible and is is still in a more or less working condition today. Really worth seeing and hiking along it.

Another one to tick off your list of aqueducts seen :-) I always find these structures impressive, ok it isn't the most striking example but it is now 'ticked'.

Upon entering the Porta da Alvis section of Elvora you will come across the Aqueduct structure. Would recommend seeing it as one of the things to do in the area. Note the attraction is free.

I've seen pictures of Roman aqueducts all my life and viewed a number of them in person. This one is really outstanding! It runs just outside the walls of our hotel and the view is mesmerizing! It has been reconstructed and /or repaired over the decades but that does nothing to detract from it's grandeur. I'm glad to have had... More

An incredible feat of engineering,Évora's aqueduct travels miles from the spring into the city. You can walk the length of it at the base (starting about a mile out of the city and taking roads where it goes underground) or just part. In soaring temperatures we walked about a quarter of it. First off we found it extremely difficult to... More

Impressive stone arches supporting the aqueduct. We found this site very useful as a landmark when driving around the city outskirts especially to get back to the free car park. A number of large campervans appeared to be parked up here for several days at a time, Evora freecamp perhaps!

We really enjoyed our walk along the aqueduct. The 8 km walk takes you through wildflower-filled meadows and past herds of cattle and sheep. It was a perfect break from busy Evora, and one of the high points of our holiday. If you don't have a car, you would probably want a taxi to take you to and from pickup... More
