The Inspection Building of Pegões Aqueduct in Tomar

Pegões Aqueduct which in Portuguese is called Aqueduto dos Pegões, isn’t too far from Tomar but unless you have some kind of transport, it’s a long walk. There is a small green train that takes tourists around Tomar, the Convent of Christ and also comes to the Aqueduct of Pegões. In my case, my sister in law took me there by car, which allowed me to shoot this engineering marvel of the 16th and 17th century, extensively. These photos show us the inspection building of the aqueduct, which was used to purify the water before being supplied to the Convent of Christ.
