Lisbon, Portugal - 6th August 2008

By: Swit

Today I went to see the Mãe de Água museum, in Lisbon. It's the main tank where water was stored to be distributed in the city, brought by the Aqueduto das Águas Livres. They are very important constructions of the XVIII Century.

First I visited the drain part of the museum, with free entrance.

It's so dark here! And so many old rusty pipes, still working!

To go to the upper part of the museum I saw nice portuguese blue tiles on the outside.

There was a garden there and a nice Kiosk.
