The Roman aqueduct, El Puente del Diablo (Devilsbridge) is situated outside the city at the highway AP-7. It was built without concrete in the 1e century AD and 'worked' till the middle ages. It's 217 meters long and the arches are some 27 meter high.

The city received water from at least 2 aqueducts. The first one received water from the Gaià near the Pont d'Armentera and the second from the Francoli river (El Puente del Diablo).

Since 2000 this aqueduct is on the UNESCO list.

Below some pictures taken from out of our coach, below that some charts/cards.
