This is a free attraction approx. 2 kms from Tomar on the Leira road. There is a car parking area underneath. Do climb up to the circular building next to the car park. This sits atop the aqueduct and gives the best view/impression of the...More

Still standing strong after all this time, this impressive aquaduct, built by the Romans, is still in a remarkably good state of repair. It is free to park up and walk up the steps. You can imagine people in Roman times gathering water from the...More

The aqueduct is one of the most important monuments in Tomar. It's majestic in the architecture point of view. And talking about the view: going to the top and walking in the aqueduct is an adventure!

It's a tough walk out of town for very little payoff. It's not like it's Roman or anything. It brought water to the monks.

Just outside the city, was a good surprise! I walked from one side to the other, it's a 100ft high walk, you need to be careful though as it can be scary if you're afraid of heights, but it really pays of! Still well preserved,...More

Incredible and a very short 5 minute drive from the Knights Templar Castle, not very many people appear to visit it. Yet we found it to be a much more incredible place then the Knights Templar. Do not miss out on this site.

This construction dates from the XVIth-XVII centuries. The construction started in 1593 and it was concluded in 1614. It is in a good state and the landscape is beautiful!

The aqueduct is in a relatively decent shape - it is worth checking out. You need a car to get there or hire a tuk-tuk

Not pont du gard, but interesting in it's own way. 2 Different kinds of arches, and there are towers at each end, which you can go into and walk out on the aqueduct. Not for acrophobes.

This is an amazing structure built so long ago and still enchanting visitors. Sadly it stops short of working still due to greedy landowners. The different levels achieved to maintain a flow of water to the convent is incredible. Do visit if you get the...More
