I left the hotel about 7.00am this morning but, before heading to Ohrid, I set the Garmin to take me to the Skopje Aqueduct that is a few km out of the city centre.
Amazingly, the aqueduct isn’t sign-posted and I saw nothing about it on the tourist information signs in the city. The government is busy building lots of new buildings and statues that ‘look old’ and seems to be ignoring this little gem. The age of the aqueduct doesn’t seem to have been firmly established. It could be as old as the 1st century, built by the Romans, or as new as the 16th century, built during the reign of the Ottoman Empire. Regardless, it is an old structure of a significant size (about 387 metres long).
I was the only person in the area this morning, so I had the aqueduct to myself for photographs. There is no protection in place for the structure, so it is possible to walk on top of it.
