Silver Water
The renaissance aqueduct and its fountains

Highlights: The Silver Water Aqueduct in Évora is 19km long.

It had the contribution of master André de Resende, who made the archaeological research that laid bare the foundations of a former Roman aqueduct, following the current aqueduct along the same route. From a complex network of springs, water is collected in the place of Divôr and distributed by remarkable monumental fountains in the urban area of Évora.
