Description

The aqueduct built in the Roman-style is called the Carioca Aqueduct. This aqueduct was built in 1723. It stands tall as Latin America’s iconic historic adaptive reuse. The purpose was to bring fresh water from the Carioca river to the citizens of the city.  It is 270m long and built in two storeys in monumental arches imitating the Roman style. This is located in the Lapaneighborhood. Due to the contemporary alternatives to supply water the Carioca Aqueduct was deactivated. In 1896, it served as a bridge for the Santa Teresa  tramway. This tram still runs in Rio de Janeiro, and it is a popular ride among the tourists.  The ride boasts the scenic view of the tramway that takes passengers from Rio de Janeiro to Bohemian hillside of Santa Teresa.  The square that sits beneath the Aqueduct is famous for its various performances throughout the year. Entertainment like circus, theatrical performances and musical concerts take place and the arches add to the charm. The Carioca Aqueduct is an immaculate landmark that adds to the picturesque beauty of  Rio de Janeiro. The ride along in the vibrant yellow streetcars that operates above the ancient aqueduct is a must visit.
