Pegões Aqueduct

The Pegões Aqueduct is one of the must-see spots in a Templar itinerary of the Médio Tejo: for its monumentality, for its surroundings and for being the perfect place to watch the sunset. At the top of the access tower vault, we can see engraved the Cross of the Order of Christ and the first sketches of the project, which dates back to the 16th century and were responsibility of Filippo Terzi, who was also was the foreman at the Convent of Christ.

It is one of the largest and most imposing Portuguese aqueducts and the connection between both monuments is unavoidable, since its 6 kilometers construction in the 16th and 17th centuries, were built to supply water to the Convent. Over the centuries, the mills have had several owners, but they have always maintained their original design.
