Aqueduto das Aguas Livres

Lisbon, Portugal
4.4 / 33
The aqueduct was erected in the first half of the 17th century and survived during the earthquake of 1755. It is still included in the city’s existing water supply system. The arches of the aqueduct reach a height of 60 meters. Until the middle of the XIX century it was possible to walk on it, however, it was decided to close the passage due to frequent suicides. Nowadays, an aqueduct can be a tour in an organized group.

It's quite an experience to walk out along such a wonderful national monument. But don't go if you are afraid of heights.
Interesting place to visit. If you walk down the street beside it you can get some pics from below. Well worth it.
Definitely deserves a visit! An impressive structure with a very interesting story! The views from the city already also interesting.
Great quick stop on our rode trip. The road actually goes through the aqueduct at one point so it is also worth just driving by.
Amazing views. Very interesting history. A must-see place in Lisbon.
Only 4€ to go in and they offer a student discount. It’s a long walk to get it all done. They had a turnaround half way through though

Nice views of Abril 25 bridge and Christ Redeemer.
It's just a walk along the aqueduct. Fortunately I didn't pay the ticket, but I don't think it's worth it.

The Aqueduto das Águas Livres is quite an amazing sight when you're driving along the highway and it comes into view.
Beautiful view and such an interesting guided visit.
I've seen only outside. it's a nice aqueduct, quite big, long and very interesting. The airplanes are always flying above it to land, so you can see t.. Read more »
Beautiful long walk in a great residential neighborhood.
Great view but nothing else to see
Quite a nice view but I'd suggest to check each side of it.
€4 entrance. We arrived at almost closing time, the guy was nice to let us in anyway but no discounts given ?. Long walk and ok view but once you’ve b.. Read more »

Nice aquaduct, you can go on it, but it's better just to see it from distance
Construction started in 1731 and was completed in 1834. On November 1st, 1755, the 1755 Lisbon earthquake hit the city, but the aqueduct managed to re.. Read more »

Historically significant and unique. It looks like they are in the process of adding information speakers. For now you have to do your own research.
