Mãe d’Água das Amoreiras

Mãe d’Água das Amoreiras (12A)

The last few arches of the “Aguas Livres” viaduct carried the water to a castle-shaped structure that worked like a cistern, supplying water to Lisbon.

This lovely spot, which contains arches decorated with tiles, was developed in 1834. 

The place also has a romantic atmosphere, maybe due to the pastoral air that surrounds the central lake and Carlos Mardel’s detailed designs of the surroundings. This made it a popular meeting place for lovers, even for kings and their mistresses.
