Hike the aqueduct!

We hiked along the aqueduct from the countryside into Evora. It's a lovely hike and unbelievable to think this is how the city got their water.

In excellent condition this viaduct is still in use today to supply the town's water. It begins just at the edge of the old part of the city and extends for 8.3 klms and is a good walk if you want to.

This is worth seeing (from a distance) even if you don't actually go visit it. It's large and gives you a sense of the scope of these ancient urban projects. Walking around the old town where the aqueduct meets it is also interesting. And cars can drive under it as they exit the city.

While it's not the biggest aqueduct it is one that is worth seeing. It does not date back to Roman times but still interesting.

Walking inside the old town as the aqueduct lowers to ground level is very interesting. The houses and other buildings integrated with it are fascinating. It is incredible that this was designed and built hundreds of years ago. We made it a point to go by it at least once a day and were always discovering something new.

We took a cab to the start of the aqueduct around 8 km outside of the city then walked back. Its a wonderful trail through farmlands alongside of it. Mostly on the ground it contours through the hillsides. One short bit you have to walk along the highway but the rest of the trail makes it worth it. Get a... More
