roman water pipe | Pölich

A bit of a thirst for adventure is important: you can visit the channel of a Roman aqueduct not far from a villa near Pölich. The channel is 1.20 m high and half a metre wide, and is openly accessible. It was carved out of the slate hillside and apparently supplied the baths of a large Roman villa. Such luxury was not uncommon then, and bears testimony not just to the remarkable technical skills of the Romans – but also to their enormous water consumption. There is a small information centre about the aqueduct in the neighbouring old fire station.
