Thirty-seven arches (about twenty five meters high) are still standing, made of alternating layers of brick and granite, approx. 21 meters high. The aqueduct was once six kilometers! long; the structure that is still standing is 1/7th of its original size. It crosses the little...More

Very impressive remnants of Roman aqueduct. The highest I’ve ever seen. We were there in April and there were lots of cranes with nests all over the aqueduct!

We enjoyed our walk here and really liked seeing all the storks flying and landing on their nests at the top of the aqueduct.

I went to Merida because of its status as a UNESCO World Heritage location, due in part to the existence of several Roman Aqueducts still standing. It is thought to have been constructed in the 1st century CE. The part that remains consists of 38...More

Very significant view of the aqueduct. I ever thought about the aqueduct was so amazing. The park is very beautiful. If you have time, you can just take a rest in the park and enjoy the view. Not too many tourists there and feel very...More
