Aqueduct, Segovia

Aqueduct, Segovia

Date 1st or early 2nd CE

Movement Roman

Located at Segovia, Spain


Romans employed their architectural and artistic forms throughout the Empire. Here, an aqueduct spans 10.5 miles to bring water to Segovia, Spain from Riofrío. The distinctly Roman form, the arch, spans over extensive terrain as a proclamation of the Romans’ conquest over nature. Unfinished granite emphasizes the structure’s strength.
