Bridge Landmark
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).

  • An amazing place in the middle of nature. You can easily get there by public transport or by car (just follow the signs from the highway). You can go for a walk around. You can also use the aqueduct as a bridge and walk across. Perfect for sunset.
  • Awesome structure. great to see what the Romans were able to construct hundreds of years ago.
  • Very cool place, great aqueduct, and lots of places to walk. You can walk all accross the top of it to, its in perfect condition! If you go to tarragona this is a must see
  • It's an amazing example of Roman architecture near the city of Tarragona. You can get there easily by public transport (there's a bus) or by car. You can walk on top of the aqueduct and there are also nice walking routes.
  • Amazing to be able to walk on something so ancient
