The Águas Livres Aqueduct was an important system to get and distribute water to the city. Lisbon always suffered from water scarcity, due to the proximity of the ocean and the width of the river, which lead the salty water to mix with the fresh one. Inspired by the roman irrigation systems, the aqueduct started being built in the 18th century as a solution to the problem.
