The Free Waters' Mystery

The Magical Aqueduct of Lisbon

Authored by Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta

The Free Water's Aqueduct is one of the largest buildings in the world. Totally constructed in stone the building resisted untouched the terrible earthquake of 1755. Its more than 40 miles of extension reveal a profound relation to the mystic universe that designed Europe over centuries. Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta, architect and photographer, reveals in a marvelous photographic essay made in 2012 and 2013, rare images covering good part of the Aqueduct. Not only a poem by the legendary poet Fernando Pessoa, the book also includes the text Fama Fraternitatis, from the 16th century, which founded the Rosicrucian Order and different Freemansory movements, in which Mozart, Claude Debussy and many other participated.
