I am fond of these structures so will always give these great reviews. The one in Segovia Spain still is my favorite but this is a nice long view of one.

Very well preserved and intact aqueduct that seems to run forever. Located at the parking area, it is hard to miss.

Interesting and it shows just how old this part of Portugal is and just how much of a Roman presence was in Portugal.

Strange to see this well preserved and maintained aqueduct running alongside a carpark. From the wall of Obidos one can see it running towards the fields in the distance. A great sight hinting at the wonders inside the walls of the city.
