El Acueducto De Queretaro, Queretaro City

Admire the effort and energy that went into the design and construction of El Acueducto De Queretaro, one of the largest such structures in the country. With 74 tall arches, the aqueduct extends 1,298 m (4,259 ft) through the downtown area. Constructed between 1726 and 1738 at a cost of $125,000, the structure supplied much-needed fresh drinking water to the town, which celebrated its completion with a 15-day festival. Today, the aqueduct represents one of the town's most famous structures, and has a symbolic value as well as an aesthetic and architectural one.

  • I recommend taking the tour bus (choose the route that goes through the aqueducts). The explanation of the guide will give you historical context of its construction and so you can appreciate it better.

  • If you get lost in a safe way out you see it many times, as there is no good signage on the streets if or if you know them

  • A very interesting landmark and visit and walk along. Grab a coffee or some food at one of the many shops along this aqueduct. Built around 1730 for the need for clean water from local springs.
  • It's just become one of my favourite places 💛
  • Beautiful architecture and design. Amazing how great of a condition it is in.
  • Beautiful site that you can see by walking along or from the Mirador.
  • Nice place to take pictures
