Split – Roman aqueduct

A well-preserved Roman aqueduct was built in the third century at the same time as the construction of Diocletian’s Palace to enable larger quantities of drinking water from the source of the river Jadro to be brought to the palace. The aqueduct is about 9 kilometres long from the source to the Palace. The original route of the Roman aqueduct has largely remained whilst demolished parts have been rebuilt. The most impressive part of Diocletian’s aqueduct is the 180 metre long and 16.5 metre high part above-ground near Dujmovača, at the entrance to Split from the direction Solin. It is the best preserved object of its kind in Croatia and is listed as an intagible cultural property.
