Create an itinerary including El Acueducto De Queretaro
Admire the effort and energy that went into the design and construction of El Acueducto De Queretaro, one of the largest such structures in the country. With 74 tall arches, the aqueduct extends 1,298 m (4,259 ft) through the downtown area. Constructed between 1726 and 1738 at a cost of $125,000, the structure supplied much-needed fresh drinking water to the town, which celebrated its completion with a 15-day festival. Today, the aqueduct represents one of the town's most famous structures, and has a symbolic value as well as an aesthetic and architectural one.

  • What an impressive and beautiful site to behold. And it's free though it's even more impressive when you get the backstory. I did a 3 hour walking tour with Arturo from Airbnb which was phenomenal...

  • It’s a must see in Queretaro. If you can come near spring break you can catch the Jacarandas in bloom and it becomes even more spectacular. Don’t forget to get a closer look, there are always different art exhibitions under the central arches. Enjoy different sculptures from local and national artists. They always change !
  • Great place to come for a walk with your partner or family. Site is excellent for pictures!
