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.
