Aqueduto das Águas Livres
Belonging to the set attached to the Águas Livres aqueduct, it is an extensive stone aqueduct created to carry water to the Terreiro do Paço de Queluz for the royal stables' consumption. The work was created at the site of two springs: the Gargantada spring and the Pocinho spring, and served several fountains in Queluz. Built by King João V in 1731, it was only finished in the mid-19th century. The main section is 14 kilometers long, eight of which are in the municipality of Amadora.
