This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile12222/Aguas-Livres-Aqueduct.htm>Aguas Livres Aqueduct</a></b><br><br>The Águas Livres Aqueduct, "Aqueduct of the Free Waters", is a historic aqueduct in the city of Lisbon, Portugal. It is one of the most remarkable examples of 18th-century Portuguese engineering. The main course of the aqueduct covers 18 km, but the whole network of canals extends through nearly 58 km.
<p>
The city of Lisbon has always suffered from the lack of drinking water, and King John V decided to build an aqueduct to bring water from sources in the parish of Caneças, in the modern municipality of Odivelas. The project was paid for by a special sales tax on beef, olive oil, wine, and other products.
