AQUEDUCT

Bul. Slovenija, Vizbegovo.

The cause of much speculation as to just who built it and exactly how old it is, Skopje’s beautiful albeit abandoned Aqueduct lies in the middle of a field just a couple of kilometres northwest of the city on the northern edge of the Ilinden Barracks. Although some claim the structure is Roman, its orientation suggests it dates from a later period and that it’s either Byzantine or Ottoman in origin. Made of stone and brick and featuring 55 surviving arches, to get there take the E-65 towards Kosovo until you reach the village of Vizbegovo then take two right turns onto a dirt track and you’ll find it at the end of a narrow path on the left. The structure is clearly marked on Google Maps.
