Since the first Sunday is free for museums and such, my husband and I decided to run back and forth on the aqueduct. We had a great time. The views of Lisbon are beautiful and the architecture is quite stunning. If you are nearby, I...More

This is a very impressive 300 year old aqueduct spanning the valley on the northwest side of the city. It is a very long span and the structure is very dramatic. It is well built and survived the earthquake. This is a "driveby" site--you do...More

You can spot it from many places in the city I don't know if you can visit it, but it is worth seeing it even from further away. Do not let yourselves fooled, this is not built by the Romans, it is rather new aqueduct...More

I'd heard about this aqueduct before arriving, and only realised how close it was to my hotel after catching glimpses while on the train to Sintra. Even more embarrassing is that it actually terminates within a 10 minute walk of said hotel. Not that old,...More

Unfortunately only got to see this from the bus a few times.. apparently it not longer carries water, and there are gardens now.. still amazing to look and and wonder how they built it.

Well, this didn't built by Romans. It's 18 century structure and is very beautiful, long and large. Only saw it from the bus. Impressive.

This is a lovely aqueduct, which can either be seen from the road, or can be explored as an attraction of its own. This time around, we just watched the old structure and didn't visit it.

This old aqueduct is very impressive, but I don't think it's a tourist destination, all the more so it's far away from other tourist attractions of Lisbon. If you take the the train to Sintra, starting from Rossio station, you will see it on the...More

Each time I go to Lisbon, I drive by/near/under/around these amazing arches, so, on this trip, I decided to go and find out what the hell they were, when they were built and photograph the hell out of them. (This was not as easy as...More

The size and height of this structure is a must see and to really appreciate it, best to take the short trip out of the city centre to see.

No need to book. It's not a very busy attraction. In fact I doubt that it is possible to book except for big groups.
