The aqueduct is extensive, and only a 15 minute walk from the heart of the centro histórico. It runs alongside an attractive park, and is close to the museum of contemporary art, a must. There's a long pedestrian walkway running beside it; quaint, quiet, yet filled with lots of student activity, and comfortable for a nice afternoon walk.

It is located on one of the main roads. Nice to take a picture, it is the back side of the 50 peso bill.

Night or day, what a wonderful sight to behold. Truly defines the city. Love how all the old stuff here is preserved so well.

It is a cool place to walk. You can walk from the historic district out to the Museum of Contemporary Art (also recommended).
