Geocache Description:


O Aqueduto das Águas Livres é um complexo sistema de captação, adução e distribuição de água à cidade de Lisboa, em Portugal, e que tem como obra mais emblemática a grandiosa arcaria em cantaria que se ergue sobre o vale de Alcântara, um dos bilhetes postais de Lisboa.

O Aqueduto foi mandado construir por D. João V, no século XVIII, tendo origem na nascente das Águas Livres, em Belas, Sintra, e o progressivamente reforçado e ampliado ao longo do século XIX. Resistiu incólume ao Terramoto de 1755.


Its the ex libris of the city of Lisbon, considered as one of the most remarkable works in hydraulic engineer of all times and one of the rarest and most complex systems of water supply from the seventeenth century preserved until today. The order of construction came from King D. João V in 1732 and only was concluded about 100 years later in 1834, although in its generality the Aqueduct was ready in the end of the eighteenth century.

The Águas Livres (Free Waters) destined to supply the new network fountains that was getting bigger, were conducted from the springs, located near Sintra to the Reservoir of Mãe d’Água of Amoreiras.The arcade of Alcântara Valley is remarkable, not only by its extension – a total of 941 meters – but also for the height of some of its 35 arches. This monument has the biggest ogive stone arch of the world, with 65, 29 m high and 28, 86 wide.

Above the Aqueduct, on both sides, we can find the sidewalk. It allowed the passage of people and animals between the hills of "Amoreiras" (Campolide) and "Monsanto" (Serafina). This passage was locked up to the public in 1852, since it was not safe, especially at night, due to presence of several thieves. Being the most recalled, "Diogo Alves" who stoled and pushed down the aqueduct his victims. He killed many pople, 4 of them from the same family. Identified and hanged up in 1841. The "Diogo Alves" stone is right over the biggest arch.
