This is an impressive engineering work of past time, in the valley of Alcantara, on the north west of the city; I can admire it only of distance, but is was splendid with a lenght of about 58 km; you can see only the very...More

The 18th Century aqueduct that we see today spans the Alcãntara valley is amazing. Today you can pay a small fee and walk across it, but even from a distance it is very impressive.

You couldn't pick a better example of remarkable, historic engineering than the Aguas Livres aqueduct. It was built in the early 18th century, survived the 1755 earthquake, which devastated much of Lisbon, and it served the much needed purpose of delivering water to the city...More

We like quirky, away-from-the-hordes attractions, & this ticked all our boxes. Just €3 per adult to walk the 1km across the valley & back. Not quiet for noise, as a motorway runs underneath. The staff member selling tickets has limited English, but is friendly and...More

Whilst you can walk across this aqueduct, i didn't have the time so restricted myself to a view from the ground, I will go back at some point and do the walk, it was still very impressive from the ground

We visited the Aqueduto on a Saturday in March, as the entry is free this year on weekends for 2017 (right now the aqueduto is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10-5:30 pm). The only real "activity" is to walk across, but the view is stunning--and it's an excellent...More

I have the distinct impression that this aquaduct has a museum associated with it, which can be found under the TripAdvisor entry of Mae de Agua (Mãe d'Água) Lisbon Aqueduct and Water Museum. I didn't know about the museum and happened to see a portion...More

The aqueduto is to the North of the city centre, but easily accessible by the (excellent) public transport network. It dominates the valley and is worth a visit, even if you don't fancy walking along the actual viaduct. You can stroll under the aqueduct and...More

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.
