  • This was the highest aquaeduct they ever built in Rome. Height of the arches in Rome 30m!!!! Length 67km constantly decreasing in height by about 1 degree. Amount of water per day: 190000 cbm. Enough for 1 million people...You can see the Caelean hill on the other side of the street and a ruin at its top, the Dolabella-Arch. Yes, they brought the water from there..
  • Roman aqueduct reaching great height to deliver water to Palatine hill.
