Fodor's Expert Review Aqueduto da Água de Prata

Guadalupe Ruins

The graceful arched Silver Water Aqueduct, which once carried water to Évora from the springs at Graça do Divor, is best seen as you drive along the road to Arraiolos (R114-4). Constructed in 1532 under the patronage of Dom João III, the aqueduct was designed by the famous architect Francisco de Arruda and extends 18 km (11 miles) north of Évora. Évora's tourist office has a map of the aqueduct and footpaths alongside it.
