Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Cool little spot with some history tied to the missions nearby. It closes at 4:30 but I went around there and the gate was still open.

Ever plan a trip itinerary, then discover an attraction along the way that you never expected to see--but glad you did. Like the Espada Aqueduct in San Antonio, Texas. How do you miss something that is designated as a National Historic Landmark? Located on Espada Road, north of Mission Espada, it is the oldest Spanish aqueduct in the United States. Built by Franciscan Friars in 1731, it still carries water over Six-Mile Creek on its way to Mission Espada. It was built to supply irrigation water to the lands near Mission Espada. The aqueduct showcases European engineering feats and masonry work. It has withstood major floods and has survived for nearly 300 years. Before the completion of the aqueduct, the Spanish would have used hollowed out logs to carry water over the creek. Once complete, water flowed across the top of the aqueduct in a channel until reunited with the earthen ditch on the other side, then flowed southwardly to Mission Espada and the farmland. Visitors can view the aqueduct from 9 to 4:30 daily. Today, it is part of the San Antonio Mission National Historical Park. In order to distribute water to the missions along the San Antonio River, Franciscan missionaries oversaw the construction of a 15-mile network of seven gravity-flow ditches, dams and at least one aqueduct that irrigated about 3,500 acres of land. The Espada Aqueduct was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1966.

The aqua duct is something of a sight but the lack of continuing maintenance of the duct and surrounding area is lacking.

This is the oldest Spanish Aqueduct in the United States. Amazing that it was built in the 1700s and is still standing today. It's located very close to Mission Espada and was used to take water to the fields. This is a very small site; we were the only ones there when we visited. Definitely worth a quick stop if you're doing the Mission Trail. There's a small parking lot where you can park.

This is a very small site just off Mission Road and the Mission trail. We had no problems parking but there is a trail head here so in busier times parking may be difficult. This a marker which talks to the construction and importance of the aqueduct and the reason this elevated section is in this location. To understand that this structure was built in the early 1700's as the builders were subject to attack is pretty incredible. I would say that this is a structure where you research its importance either before you visit or after.

It's a small site along the Mission trails that can be parked out for those driving between the Missions. It's small and can be seen in a couple of minutes with no detour, so worth seeing for those along the trail.

While the entire park is not open and access to the aqueduct is limited. It is still great to visit and see it continuing to function after years of use. It is part of the Mission's Trail and easily accessed from the trail. We also enjoyed seeing the one at San Juan. Really interesting to see how they ensured water for their crops and the success of the missions.

Having visited the beautiful missions in San Antonio multiple times, the Espada Aqueduct was the one area I hadn’t seen. It was a typically scorching late afternoon in August, and my parents and I had the park entirely to ourselves. It seems more like you’re in the south Texas countryside, rather than a city. Listening to the birds, and the shallow, rippling creek beneath the Aqueduct was relaxing in itself. Fish were easily seen, a few spiders, content to stay on their webs, and a breeze rustled through the trees. The Aqueduct itself is a marvel of San Antonio’s historic origins, and being the only one still in operation, is worth seeing. The hill leading down to the stream, has rocks and trees, to sit, and take in the surroundings. Don’t forget your sunscreen and water. It was hot, but the combination of nature, and imagining the ingenuity used to create this Aqueduct in the 1700’s, made it 100% worth it.

This was so amazing to know that this aqueduct and dam, which took 5 years to construct in the 1700s, could survive for centuries and still be a useful part of the city. Be sure to read the information available on site.

It's remarkable that something built so long ago is still working. It has a nice little park area which was open. The only thing that detracted from it was the trash, including a blue plastic barrel, in the stream under the arch of the aqueduct.
