Pont del Diable, Tarragona

4.8
See, and even walk on top of, Pont del Diable, a structure built by the Romans thousands of years ago. Originally designed to bring water to the ancient city of Tárraco (now Tarragona) from the Francolí River, this aqueduct is a lasting example of what the Romans accomplished. Walk along this structure on your own, or take a tour to learn more about its history. Part of the Archaeological Ensemble of Tarraco, which was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 2000, this aqueduct is two levels high, reaching a maximum height of 27 m (89 ft) and a length of 249 m (817 ft).

  • Excellent!
  • The ' devil's bridge ' (also called the aqueduct of the Ferreres) is a Roman aqueduct bridge built between the sides of the ravine of the arches in the municipality of Tarragona, which carried water from the Francolí River in the ancient city of Tarraco. It is one of the most monumental and well-preserved aqueducts of the Roman Empire and the most important of Catalonia. [1] its management depends on the National History Museum of Tarragona. VIKI
