“New military fence makes it inaccessible”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Walked through the suburbs, and into the country to see this. But as you approach the military base the road to the right has been fenced off. The only option would be to walk through the fields. Day i was there it was muddy, lots of fences, so i gave up. Disappointed.

“Very attractive ruin, difficult to get to”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Part of the attraction of the aqueduct is that you are going to feel as if you're stumbling on a hidden gem because, well, this is a hidden gem. If you want to drive, it isn't easy--there is a road that goes all the way there, but you first have to know where you're going and then trust that the single-lane dirt road taking you past a row of unlikely houses will get you there. Once there, you can climb on top of the aqueduct, though I wouldn't advise this if it is wet, as it could be slippery--walking on it is not a safe activity if you don't have excellent balance and footing. They did reconstruct three arches in the middle, apparently part of a recent attempt to make this more of a destination, though that hasn't happened. The day I was there, an old local man was shepherding to his two cows under the aqueduct. The military base issue might be overblown. It is a really depressed looking military base, and there was one soldier who was out monitoring us but there were plenty of pictures to take, including in the direction of the base, and no one saw us or raise any concern. (The military base looks more like an abandoned industrial wasteland.) Anyway, it's worth seeing if you're in town with time to kill.

“worth a walk if you have time”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

the aqueduct is quite a way out of town and part of the walk is along a busy road without pavements however its an interesting place to visit and chances are nobody will get in the way of your photo's! its very close to an army base though so you have to face away from it in case they think you are spying on them and confiscate yer camera! worth a trip if you have the time but not something you should worry about if you miss
