Geocache Description:


Ostaci rimskog vodovoda jedan su od značajnijih antičkih građevinskih spomenika na ovom području. U narodu su već odavno zaboravljena imena ovog vodovoda - „Vilin put“, „Kraljev vodovodnik“, „Trajanov put“…

Vodovod, koji je počinjao iznad sela Vrana, u špilji Pećina, u dužini od oko 42 km, a završavao u starom Jaderu (Zadar), najduži je na području naše zemlje, a po tehničkim rješenjima i jedan od najsloženijih.
 
Uz istočni rub špilje još uvijek se mogu vidjeti ostaci zazidanog kanala, postantičkog doba.
 
Pazite se pauka.

The remains of a Roman aqueduct is one of the major ancient architectural monuments in this area. The people have already forgotten the name of this water - "Elvish way", "King vodovodnik", "Trajan's way" ...

Water supply, which began over the Vrana village, in cave Pećina, in a distance of about 42 km, and ended in the old Iader (Zadar), was the longest in our country, and by the technical solutions one of the most complex.

Along the eastern edge of the cave can still be seen remains of walled canal, from post antique time.

Beware of the spiders.
