This beautiful and well preserved aqueduct has access via a tower that allows you to walk along the top. An amazing experience!! Lots of parking. No fees. The perfect compliment to a visit at the Convent of Christ. We loved Tomar!

This aqueduct is huge and impressive. It stretches for ages and is well preserved. If you like this sort of thing it is well worth making a detour to see.

Very interesting to see! Although you are able to walk along its entirety, you are doing so on a little ledge high above the road. Wear proper shoes and be sure to duck when you enter the buildings! ;0)
