About Mãe d’Água

The entrance to Lisbon of the Águas Livres Aqueduct, marked by the arch of Rua das Amoreiras by the Hungarian architect Carlos Mardel between 1746 and 1748, was closed at the Mãe d'Água Reservoir of Amoreiras. After Carlos Mardel's death in 1763, the final reservoir of the Aqueduct, begun in 1746, was still to be completed. The work was resumed, in 1771, by Reinaldo Manuel dos Santos, who introduced some modifications to the initial plan.

"Gostaria de recomendar imensamente o passeio guiado sobre a história da escravidão no Imperio Português, que pude realizar com o excelente guia senhor Rui. O passeio permite conhecer a história da escravidão juntamente com a história política de Portugal. Ouvir essa parte da história ao longo de uma caminhada pelas ruas de Lisboa, visitando locais em que ocorreu, nos faz pensar e conhecer a história de uma forma diferente."
