Simply the best I've seen in water conservation and irrigation. Incredible technology for the time to conserve this precious resource in a dry climate. Good view from the air, too. You've got to see them to appreciate.

Very cool to see the intelligence behind the design of this water system, go with a guide that can explain the history and knowledge behind the thought process.

Our Tour Guide gave us an interesting introduction to the Aqueduct. We could walk down to the Aqueduct to closely examine it, very interesting indeed!

Imagine building something and having it work 1000 years later, that's the aqueducts, go see it, very impressive. You can walk into the the front few and get a great photo from inside

We saw these from the air when going to see the lines, so it was fun to see them on the ground. Quick taxi ride, the entrance fee also covers several other local attractions. The 20-ish wells are very interesting with their spiral walkways, right...More
