Visit to the Aqueduto das Águas Livres, Lisboa
(Photographies)

“The aim of this visit is to know a technical solution built in the 18th century in order to give a solution for the problem of the lack of water in Lisbon.
Built by the initiative of the king John the 5th, water came to Lisbon without using machines or siphons, only through opened stone pipes, by gravity.
In our visit we will see how different kinds of water were gathered in the aqueduct, and how water and pipes were cleaned, either using decantation basins, or removing incrustations from the pipes, as well as we will see how water from around 60 sources was managed into the aqueduct system.
After visiting the sources till Carenque Valley, we will cross Alcântara Valley through the top of the monumental arches, where we have the biggest stone arch of the world.
We will end our visit at Mãe d'Água das Amoreiras, the big reservoir from where water flow to the monumental fountains built on squares all over the city of Lisbon.”
