Roman Aqueduct Tours

A short drive off into the hills of Tarragona, and alongside a busy highway, sits one of the region’s most prized and yet very unexpected sights: a proper Roman aqueduct. Though its construction date isn’t quite certain, it’s believed to have been built during the time of Augustus – from 27 BC to 14 AD – and used to cover a much longer distance. 

Also called the Devil’s Bridge (after a legend that it was built by the Devil himself), the aqueduct resides among a forest of trees and greenery, which is crisscrossed by trails suitable for biking and walking. While there, wonder among the woodland, have lunch at the park restaurant’s outdoor terrace, and, best of all, go for a stroll atop the Roman aqueduct itself, which used to transport water to the ancient city of Tarraco (now Tarragona).

Practical Info

The aqueduct is situated 4 kilometers away from Tarragona and is easily reachable by car or public bus. To get there by public transport, catch the 5 bus from Tarragona. Note that it will drop you off on the side of the highway, just steps away from the somewhat tree-hidden parking lot and entrance. To return to Tarragona, simply catch the same bus going in the same direction, as it runs in a loop.
