This attraction has easy access to it by car, bus, the Nerja sightseeing train or along a well-traveled walking trail. It looks like a fine example of a Roman aqueduct but it is actually pretty modern, built by one of the sugar growers. If you enjoy looking at fake architecture this is a fine example.

It is one of those places you see the photos and think this is a must see, But once you have seen it, you realize it isn't that special at all. It was interesting to see on from the tourist bus from the town to the caves, but not worth going out of you way for,

Drove there expecting a nice piece of Roman history but in reality it is a Victorian period structure built to supply a now defunct factory. Not worth the trouble in my opinion.

From the pictures and the guidebooks. the aqueduct appears to be in a beautiful spot, however the reality is that it is sat between a motorway and an "A" road, and if you blink when passing you may miss it.

Passed by on a coach and it looked well worth a visit. especially after we found that it was an aqueduct and not a bridge.

Unless your walking quite difficult to see, couldnt find any option to park up and view so not easy to get any good photos

A really nice walk from Maro to this sight or from Nerja if you're super fit! It's quite spectacular.
