April 20, 2019 @ 14:50 - 17:30€5 – €15
The Águas Livres Aqueduct was constructed between 1731 and 1799, by order of King John V. It survived the earthquake of 1755. Its arches and canals spread throughout Lisbon for a total of 58 kilometers. It supplied the city with fresh water for decades. In 1910, it became a National Monument. It is considered a marvel of hydraulic engineering the world over.
And it looks cool.
Want to take a 5-kilometer stroll across it and experience its majesty for yourself?
