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).

  • This place nicely surprise me as it was a short, nice trail heading to not only the surroundings of the structure, but we were also able to walk on the aqueduct from one side to the other. Fantastic.....  more »
  • This Roman aquaduct soars above the pine forests just outside the city. You can walk along the top of it and entrance is free. Just 5 minutes' drive out of the city, highly recommended if you have.....  more »
  • Beware! The aquaduct is beautiful and cool in so many ways. This review is in no way a bad reflection on the site itself. PLEASE be aware of pick pockets and theft in the car park. My family were.....  more »

  • Wow, just wow! Amazed at this Roman aqueduct, the state off preservation, and that we were able to walk all the way across it. Easily and cheaply reached from Town centre by public service bus (return from the same drop off stop)
  • Worth a visit. It’s free and has parking . It’s tucked away between several busy roads and with the smell of the pine forest first thing in the morning it’s as if you’ve been transported back 2000 years. Magical. There is also a cafe
  • Amazing that this structure is still around after 2000 years. This is very well preserved structure from the Roman era. Worth walking in and climbing up to the structure itself.
  • Lovely place to visit for a morning. Interesting and fun for kids. Nice cafe to have a drink at before leaving.
  • One of the most complete aqueducts I’ve seen. Best thing is that it’s situated within a park so it makes for a nice visit outside of the city. Great place for a little picnic . The most special part was that you can actually walk across the top of the aqueduct !
