Geocache Description:

Mais uma excelente vista sobre este magnífico monumento.


O Aqueduto dos Pegões foi construído com a finalidade de abastecer de água o Convento de Cristo em Tomar, e tem cerca 6 km de extensão com várias nascentes ao longo do percurso.

O aqueduto tem 58 arcos de volta inteira, na sua parte mais elevada, sobre 16 arcos ogivais apoiados em pilares. A sua altura máxima é de 30 metros. Nos extremos apresenta casas abobadadas, que têm no centro, uma larga pia destinada à decantação da água.

O Aqueduto visto daqui tem ainda mais beleza. Os seus arcos, a sua grandeza e nobreza pode ser apreciada e contemplada por todos. Espero que partilhem esta minha opinião. 

ENG

The Pegões Aqueduct was built with the purpose of supplying the Convent of Christ in Tomar with water, and is about 6 km long with several springs along the route. The aqueduct has 58 full-back arches, at its highest point, on 16 ogival arches resting on pillars. Its maximum height is 30 meters. At the ends it presents vaulted houses, which have in the center, a large sink for the decanting of the water. The Aqueduct seen from here has even more beauty. Its arches, its grandeur and nobility can be appreciated and contemplated by all. I hope you share my opinion.
