Aqueduto das Aguas Livres

Lisbon, Portugal
4.4 / 5
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.

Tranquil atmosphere. Off the beaten track so not crowded with tourists. Interesting architecture, particularly getting a chance to see the interior where the water travelled. Unique views of the city.


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 remain intact. Its best known part is the 35 arches over the valley, the highest of which is 65 meters.. Read more »


The museum is open 10:00 to 17:30 from Tuesday to Sunday. Some good views from on the aqueduct and from a bit away. A 1km walk and incredibly free of too many tourists as it’s a bit out of the way. Use your Lisboa Card to get here by bus.


€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 been on the many rooftops and attraction it’s al the same really


Quite a nice view but I'd suggest to check each side of it.
