Arches of the Aqueduct of Pegões at close proximity

When I visited the Aqueduct of Pegões near the City of Tomar, I walked around taking lots of photos, not only at distance but also at close proximity of the arches. I didn’t take pictures of all the 180 arches, which were built in the 16th century, but the ones that I did, I noticed that in some places the arches stand quite high but in other places they are much closer to the ground.
