Amoreira Aqueduct, Elvas - Portugal

The Garrison Border Town of Elvas and its Fortifications is the newest portuguese Unesco site and the Amoreira Aqueduct is one of the classified properties.
To celebrate this good news, Zé "PilotOne" hosted a lottery and i was the lucky winner. I already had cards from this town but i've never been there.

The towering Amoreira Aqueduct, 7km (4.5miles) in length that took over 100 years to complete. With a total of 843 arches, and at some places rising to over 30m (100ft), it still brings water to town.
