Built in the 18th century to bring water to Lisbon, it offers some good views of Lisbon, in one of the the ugliest areas of town. Progress around has endangered it, because the arches are too narrow for the actual road needs, but the love and respect of the inhabitants is keeping it untouched.

It is 19 km long, but the best points are the arches crossing the valley of Alcantara, and the arrival point at Amoreiras, now the water museum of "Mãe-de-Agua"

Address: Calçada Quintinha 6, 1070-225 Lisboa
