The Silver Water aqueduct was built between 1531 and 1537 to supply the city of Évora with water, the aqueduct is about 5 miles long and begins at the foot of the Height of St. Benedict, crossing part of the town through the Rua do Cano (the one you see on the picture) and the Rua do Salvador.

You can notice all the houses build above the original aqueduct.
