(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Historical structure of the colonial era, where it was used to carry water to the city of queretaro, since the area did not have enough resource aquifer, to the present day, which is one of the problems of this beautiful city, being preserved adequately as a historical monument, since it crosses the same and its streets are seen this structure. You can not miss it.

  • The aqueduct of Querétaro, the most beautiful country, its excellent architecture and its fabulous history made of the aqueduct a magical visit, I recommend you walk them, walk their sidewalks outside you do not step on the gardens, you can take a coffee at any of the establishments that exist along the route, visit them at night illuminated are beautiful.

  • It is a very beautiful tourist attraction... If we could add a viewpoint or something similar to see it full from a high point, it would be great for tourism.
