In the 1st century A.D., two long aqueducts were built to supply the city with water.

 

The first was fed by the Gaià river and was approximately 40 km long. The second was fed by the Francolí river and was some 15 km long. The most spectacular surviving stretch belongs to the second aqueduct and consist of a 217-metre segment that stands 26 metres tall at its highest point and bridges a ravine.

 

It was built from large ashlars stacked without mortar to form two tiers at arches. It is popularly known as the Pont del Diable (Devil‚Äôs Bridge) or the ‚ÄúLes Ferreres‚ÄĚ Aqueduct.
