Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Tarragona / Costa Dorada / Tarragona / Pont del Diable
See, and even walk on top of, Pont del Diable, a structure built by the Romans thousands of years ago. Originally designed to bring water to the ancient city of Tárraco (now Tarragona) from the Francolí River, this aqueduct is a lasting example of what the Romans accomplished. Walk along this structure on your own, or take a tour to learn more about its history. Part of the Archaeological Ensemble of Tarraco, which was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 2000, this aqueduct is two levels high, reaching a maximum height of 27 m (89 ft) and a length of 249 m (817 ft). Our Tarragona vacation maker tool makes visiting Pont del Diable and other Tarragona attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Pont del Diable reviews
The Roman aqueduct in Tarragona was my fifth aqueduct after the Valens in Istanbul, the aqueduct in Segovia, the Aqua Appia in Rome, and the famous Pont du Gard near Nimes. The aqueduct of Tarragona..... more »
This place nicely surprise me as it was a short, nice trail heading to not only the surroundings of the structure, but we were also able to walk on the aqueduct from one side to the other. Fantastic..... more »
Wow, just wow! Amazed at this Roman aqueduct, the state off preservation, and that we were able to walk all the way across it. Easily and cheaply reached from Town centre by public service bus (return from the same drop off stop)
Worth a visit. It’s free and has parking . It’s tucked away between several busy roads and with the smell of the pine forest first thing in the morning it’s as if you’ve been transported back 2000 years. Magical. There is also a cafe
