The Aqueduct of the Free Waters is a historic aqueduct in the city of Lisbon. It is one of
the most remarkable examples of 18th-century Portuguese engineering. The main course of
the aqueduct covers 18 kms, but the whole network of canals extends through nearly 58 kms.
The project was paid for by a special sales tax on beef, olive oil, wine, and other products.
Construction of the aqueduct started in 1731. A total of 35 arches crosses the valley,
covering 941 m. It is considered a masterpiece of engineering in the Baroque period.
The 'Mother of the Water' reservoir of Amoreiras, the largest of the water reservoirs, was
finished in 1834.


All railway trains should be completely smoke -free.
