Aqueduto dos Arcos do Sardão

Aqueduto dos Arcos do Sardão


This aqueduct was built in 1720 at the orders of José Bento Leitão, the maternal grandfather of the Portuguese writer Almeida Garrett.

It was built to carry water from a spring at Vilar de Andorinho to the palace of Quinta do Sardão. It is a robust structure consisting of a row of twenty-three large semicircular arches, standing on a similar number of pillars. It was partly destroyed at the end of 1987.
