My wife and I drive past on our way to the caves not realising what this was. 'Oh, look at that' I say. 'Oh yeah. Cool' she replies. It was just as quickly forgotten. I put it as a stop after we'd finished the caves and went back. We got out, read the little write up, took a quick picture... More

Whilst staying at the Nerja Club we went along to see the aqueduct. Nice walk which took us about 30-40 minutes admiring the scenery and views along the way. Interesting to learn about the history and took lots of photos from the road side looking up the valley.

Saw this from the road a couple of times as we drove past. There didn't seem to be anywhere to stop and have a good walk around other than a small lay by, but I suppose we could have missed it.

You have to stop, park and take pictures. It is something to see especially when you know that it is still an aqueduct that is still working...

Great place to take a photo of this aqueduct - lit up at night (pink with pink lights). On outskirts of Nerja on the way to the caves.

The aqueduct has been well preserved and is impressive. It is visible from the main road from Nerja to the caves and Maro. There are safe parking spaces to capture the view. It is not an ancient site, but a remarkable piece of industrial architecture.

This is one of the things you must see when you visit Nerja. To be honest, it doesn't warrant more than a look, a photo or two, and a discussion as to its architectural merits, but it's certainly worth seeing. There are lay-bys where you can pull in, and walk along a little bit to see it properly, or you... More

If you are staying in Nerja, take a walk past the old sugar cain factory and past the Aqueduct to Mary. Interesting and better than walking to Maro by the road side

If you are walking from the centre of Nerja to visit the Caves...which are an excellent attraction...you cannot miss the Aqueduct. Built to supply water to the nearby Sugar Cane Refinery....again you would have past the nearby ruins on your walk. All part of the history of the town. Free and easy to find an a pleaseng walk from the... More

Very interesting to see this aqueduct. It is used by farmers to irrigate the land (so one local told us, we don't know if that is true). Lovely photo opportunity of something a little bit different.
