Venetian Aqueduct

Outside Udine Gate you will find the imposing structure of the Venetian Aqueduct.

Although its construction dates back to the origins of the fortress, it was restored several times: in 1665, under the Superintendence of Alvise Molin, where it was completely rebuilt with stones of Medea and in 1771 when it took its present form.

The aqueduct was used to conduct the water of the Palma Canal inside the fortress for civic use. The central plaque, created in 1751 by the citizen of Palmanova Carlo Pico, represents a lion’s skin between two female allegorical figures: Igea and Sorgente. It also contains a laudatory epigraph on the superintendent Pisani completely restored by the Superintendence in 2013.
