4.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
See, and even walk on top of, Puente del Diablo, 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).

  • On the main road the big pointers to this attraction. Left the car parked and walked the wooden boardwalk deep into the Woods, then Rocky footpath a few minutes and before you fly bridge-aqueduct. Of course you can see from the platform in the parking lot, but it's better to take 10-15 minutes.

  • The place is easy to get to, in my opinion is worth a day trip, if we think it was built by the Romans for water transportation. Hats off

  • If you expect something huge or colossal, as in Segovia, it is not the case. It is well preserved, in the middle of a wild-type Park, has good visibility, it is convenient to reach (but hard to find the entrance to the car park if you're not attentive to the signs) and their photos are more spectacular than the actual view. You must go see it if you're in Tarragona, but don't expect the visit to consume you too long. 4 KMS. of the city, by the N-240 towards Lleida, just past a bridge high and before a gas station, you'll see a detour. If you can't find how Devil's bridge, look for it as Aqüeducte de les ferreres.

  • amazing and well saved aguaduct in the country side of tarragona. to get there by bike is not so easy as it's located next to a high way. it turned out that there is a road through the river from tarragona. so to have some more way indictors and background information of this monument would be nice.
  • 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.
  • Great chance to see an aqueduct in spain, great experience.
  • Big Roman construction where the water, passed trough, thousands of years ago to bring water to Tarragona
  • I was amazed by this Roman architecture!! Nice access from highway))
