Afrin Roman Aqueduct

Setting out from the city in a northwesterly direction towards Polateli, before you arrive at Ravanda Castle, you will come to the Roman Afrin Aqueduct. It lies to the northwest of the village of Cengin (Bağarası) in a narrow valley that connects to the Afrin Brook. After passing through the village of Cengin, head north for 1.5 km, and then take the stabilized road off to the left.

After 3 km you will come to the Afrin Brook, and after a further 50 m, nestled amongst oleander trees, stands the Roman aqueduct.

The ruins of the aqueduct seen today indicate that this two-storey structure was much longer, however the beginning and end points of this ashlar stone aqueduct have not been identified.
