The Carioca Aqueduct is located in the center of town and is an 18th century Aqueduct that was originally build to give Rio a better water supply at a time when the town had big problems with bad drinking water.
The Aqueduct is not needed for that anymore and these days it´s used as a bridge for the famous Rio tram.
