I love the sea, and I love rivers, but I have to say that this ancient viaduct is my favourite spot in Tarragona Province, at least so far. The majestic arches and sand-coloured brickwork of Pont del Diable (Devil’s Bridge) contrasts with the vibrant green of the surrounding countryside. Standing just off the busy E15 (Autopista del Mediterrani) leading into Tarragona, it is a surprising refuge of peace and quiet.
Its official name is Aqüeducte de les Ferreres: it was the aqueduct built in Roman times to take water to the Roman town of Tarraco. The 2 levels of arches, 25 at the top and 11 at the bottom, dominate the surrounding countryside.
The bridge is signposted from the E15 and there is parking available.
