This is an engineering marvel, that most of it, is still intact. This aqueduct brought water to the Convent of Christ. Though most of the aqueduct is inaccesible, there are ways to get on the top and walk along the top. If you do decide...More

Don't miss the architecture beauty that is dated late 16th century. It's easy to access from the road- We came by car. I saw a group walking with a guide along the aqueduct. You will take some beautiful pictures there.

Portugal shows an abundance of aqueducts in the center region, surprisingly,this one, providing the water to the convent of christ is one of the best samples of medieval structures. Well preserved and easy to follow for several km

Visited the Aqueduct on a Tuk Lovers Tour and the immensity and dedication in building the structure was impressive. More impressive than the Aqueduct in the Provence of France. Definitely take the time to visit Tomar, it's a city that should not be missed.

If you are visiting the Convent of Christ (Templar Knights Castle in Tomar), we would highly recommend taking 10 minutes to visit Pegoes Aqueduct. It is amazing.

This is just outside of Tomar though it's not well signposted from Tomar direction. I'm a fan of aquaducts (no, really) - they are always a reminder of what amazing things people built centuries ago that had a genuine purpose and they never fail to...More
