Beautiful aqueduct
apr 2021 • Páry
I don't understand where the reviews about bad findability come from, because it's super easy to find. You arrive at a free parking place from where you reach the aqueduct in a 5-minute walk. It is a beautiful Roman aqueduct which is worth a visit. There are different view points and you can cross the aqueduct to the other side. In addition, you can also enjoy hiking in the woods in the surrounding area.

The most picturesque and accessible of the 5 aqueducts I have seen.
jan 2020
The Roman aqueduct in Tarragona was my fifth aqueduct after the Valens in Istanbul, the aqueduct in Segovia, the Aqua Appia in Rome, and the famous Pont du Gard near Nimes. The aqueduct of Tarragona or the devil's bridge certainly did not get on the 5-Euro bill like the Pont du Gard, but it is the most picturesque I have seen, even if not the largest. Getting to the Devil's bridge is easy. You need to take the 5 or 85 bus on the ring at the bus station. The aqueduct Park is just 5 km from Tarragona. After getting off at the bus stop of the same name, go right for another 500 meters. And here it is: Wow! There are two things I admire most about Roman aqueducts. The ability of engineers to calculate the slope for many kilometers and the ability of builders to accurately perform it. This is the art of leading water (from Latin: aqua — water and ducere-lead).Roman engineers could determine the slope with an accuracy of 0.1 degrees — that is, 1 m of slope per 1 km of aqueduct. It is not easy to implement this in practice, so to avoid changing the angle of inclination, special reservoirs were created that accumulate and equalize water. The water trough is preserved in the aqueduct here. You can see it if you climb to the top. In fact, it was not necessary to build an aqueduct of this size. It would be possible to lay siphon pipes to the bottom of the gorge, following its profile and then lift it up to a height just below the original level. This is called a hydraulic gradient. Why did the Romans prefer to build giant aqueducts? The size is disorienting. We think if bigger and more massive means more expensive. However, pipes (lead pipes) have cost the Romans more expensive than bridges. Masonry was cheap, due to the cheapness of stone, brick, and mortar. Only if the depth of the gorges was great, the Romans stretched pipes to the bottom,and then up. In our case, the aqueduct is 27 meters high. The water was taken from the Rourell area, 92 metres above sea level, and carried more than ten kilometres The grandiose structure could not but cause mystification in the middle ages, when the Visigoths, and then the Spaniards lost the ability to build such structures. They named the aqueduct the devil's bridge, linking it with the legend that the devil will take the soul of the person who enters the bridge first. Local residents let a donkey on the bridge first... The donkey is not Faust, its soul is not interesting. Now you can walk on the bridge as you like. This is probably the most accessible aqueduct I've ever seen.

What a nice surprise!
sep 2020 • Páry
This place nicely surprise me as it was a short, nice trail heading to not only the surroundings of the structure, but we were also able to walk on the aqueduct from one side to the other. Fantastic place for photography and to spend a nice solo time or with family!

A Tarragona must see
júl 2020
This Roman aquaduct soars above the pine forests just outside the city. You can walk along the top of it and entrance is free. Just 5 minutes' drive out of the city, highly recommended if you have a car.

Beware of pickpockets at the Pont de Diable
mar 2020 • Priatelia
Beware! The aquaduct is beautiful and cool in so many ways. This review is in no way a bad reflection on the site itself.
PLEASE be aware of pick pockets and theft in the car park.
My family were the victims of pick pockets. A Spanish women and man in their thirties sprayed us with “bird poo” when we were sitting on a bench. The man did this hidden from behind a tree. The woman said it was a bird that flew overhead. She then approached us with wet wipes to “help” us get the smelly green “poo” off our clothes and hair!
In the meantime, they are pick pockets and going through our purse/backpacks while we were overwhelmed with the disgusting “poo”.
After returning to our hotel smelling horrible and feeling thankful about the couple who “helped” us, we discovered 2 missing credit cards.
They used our feelings of shame and horror at the incident to buy more time to charge $2600 in cosmetics and electronics.
Thankfully the credit card company was helpful in closing the accounts and we were not liable. We also had an alternative credit card for the remainder of the trip.
Please BEWARE! These people were a nicely dressed couple and very helpful. Most people’s instinct is to be grateful for the assistance in a horrible circumstance. This is how they get close in your personal space to rob you.
If this happens to you, walk away. If you’re traveling with someone, help each other - away from the perpetrators.
I have been traveling international for 25 years and never heard of this type of scam before.
As humiliating as it is to admit you were scammed, it would be worse not to post something and have it happen to someone else. (It will- these people are professionals).
Enjoy the Pont- watch out for the “Diables”.

Some things are worth paying for - but this is free!
mar 2020 • Sólo
Pop yourself in the free carpark but then head straight up through the gates (and not left like us muppets) for about 200 metres.

The area itself is great for discovery but marvel at the beautiful aqueduct and the achievement in building this. What's more you can walk over it after all these years - wonderful.

Beautiful Place
jan 2020
The aqueduct is well preserved and in a beautiful setting and can be walked across. The park has many trails if you want to spend an afternoon. Take the bus (Route 5 or 85) from Placa Imperial. The bus stop at Placa Imperial is located at Av. Marques de Montoliu. You can pay driver when you board and let the driver know you want to stop at Pont del Diable. The stop is on the highway, but near the park entrance. To return to Tarragona, simply go back to bus stop, pay driver for another ticket, and continue on Route 5 or 85. You will wind through suburban neighborhood and then head back to the city. The bus trip was easy and this site should not be missed if you are visiting Tarragona.

We loved it!
jan 2020
The aqueduct is impressive in itself, but what surprised us was the extent of the grounds/park. You can easily spend the afternoon here, bring a snack or picnic lunch (only a bathroom, otherwise no amenities). Worth the 20 minute bus ride outside of town.

Just Stunning
nov 2019
This is just a stunning place to go, apart from the splendour of the aquedct itself, which is mind blowing, it is situated in a wondferful valley and it was so peaceful to walk through this in which to see the aqueduct itself. We were lucky enough to be the only two visitors there, thanks to our taxi-driver guide, and to see this attraction and touch the ancient stone walls was a real treat.
