Agua de Prata Aqueduct

Évora is one of the most beautiful cities in all of Portugal and is certainly the best known in Alentejo. At a distance it stands out thanks to the views and spectacular Roman aqueduct. It is known as the aqueduct that gives water to Prata and has undergone several reconstructions throughout history, because this was always an important city. After the Romans founded it, it became an important Arab and then Christian city.

On the way to Vila Viçosa, we crossed Borba, and the first thing we noticed was this fountain. It's called das Bicas and is huge, all made of marble. It is located in the main square of the town.
