Pont del Diable information

Lonely Planet review

The so-called Devil’s Bridge is actually the Aqüeducte de les Ferreres , an engineering marvel left by the Romans. Its most intact section sits 4km away from the centre, just off the AP7 freeway. It is a fine stretch of a two-tiered aqueduct (217m long and 27m high); in its glory days, it delivered water to over 200,000 people from the Ríu Gayo, 32km away. Bus 5 to Sant Salvador from Plaça Imperial de Tàrraco, running every 20 minutes, will take you to the vicinity, or park in one of the lay-bys marked on either side of the AP7, just outside the freeway toll gates.
