A short drive off into the hills of Tarragona, and alongside a busy highway, sits one of the region’s most prized and yet very unexpected sights: a proper Roman aqueduct: Les Ferreres Aqueduct (Pont del Diable). Though its construction date isn’t quite certain, it’s believed to have been built during the time of Augustus – from 27 BC to 14 AD – and used to cover a much longer distance.
Also called the Devil’s Bridge (after a legend that it was built by the Devil himself), the aqueduct resides among a forest of trees and greenery, which is crisscrossed by trails suitable for biking and walking. While there, wonder among the woodland, have lunch at the park restaurant’s outdoor terrace, and, best of all, go for a stroll atop the Roman aqueduct itself, which used to transport water to the ancient city of Tarraco (now Tarragona).
