Upon entering the Porta da Alvis section of Elvora you will come across the Aqueduct structure. Would recommend seeing it as one of the things to do in the area. Note the attraction is free.

I've seen pictures of Roman aqueducts all my life and viewed a number of them in person. This one is really outstanding! It runs just outside the walls of our hotel and the view is mesmerizing! It has been reconstructed and /or repaired over the decades but that does nothing to detract from it's grandeur. I'm glad to have had... More

An incredible feat of engineering,Évora's aqueduct travels miles from the spring into the city. You can walk the length of it at the base (starting about a mile out of the city and taking roads where it goes underground) or just part. In soaring temperatures we walked about a quarter of it. First off we found it extremely difficult to... More

Impressive stone arches supporting the aqueduct. We found this site very useful as a landmark when driving around the city outskirts especially to get back to the free car park. A number of large campervans appeared to be parked up here for several days at a time, Evora freecamp perhaps!

We really enjoyed our walk along the aqueduct. The 8 km walk takes you through wildflower-filled meadows and past herds of cattle and sheep. It was a perfect break from busy Evora, and one of the high points of our holiday. If you don't have a car, you would probably want a taxi to take you to and from pickup... More

The Silver Water Aqueduct was built over a pre-existing roman aqueduct (some traces remain to this day) in the first half of the 16th century and has a total length of 19 km, part of which can still be seen inside the city walls. There's an associated 8 km walking track that starts close to the "Porta da Lagoa" and... More

We parked at access point 2 and did a round trip walk to the end and back by road. Mostly off the beaten path following the aqueduct that in general stands about 5 feet off ground level and represents the 19th century rebuild of the 16th century original, though with a lot of homage and incorporation.. A good insight into... More

The aqueduct is well preserved, and many people have used it as a wall of their house or shop. Much discussion of the planning and building of aqueducts followed...
