antico-acquedotto The ancient aqueduct as seen from 'via Pascoli'. credit: Massimo Todisco

In 1501 the first fount for this water system was built to bring water from the source in the Rupina area up to the castle of Barga

At this point, the aqueduct was built with wide arches on what was once the high walls of the castle.From the two bridges (Ponte Vecchio and Ponte di Via Pascoli) you can admire a fantastic view of this aqueduct.
