Roman Aqueduct of Nikopolis

The aqueduct, 50 km. long, carried the water from the springs of Louros to two cisterns in the Nymphaeum of Nikopolis. It actually consists of three parts, each constucted in a different manner:

– a channel with a vaulted, water-proof roof and ventilation shafts

– a tunnel quarried out in the Kokkinopelos valley and

– arcaded bridges that carried the water across the hills.
