Aqueducts
Roman Period




From the Ćićarija mountain range (La Ciceria in Italian, Tschitschen Boden in German, and also known Monti della Vena, La catena dei Caldiera, and the Altipiano dei Cici in italian, water was brought to many cities by Roman aqueducts and down to Pula (Pola) at the southern tip of Istria. Pula was the summer home of the Emperors of the Caesar family who also built the Amphitheater or Arena. The Aqueducts used lead pipes and tubes to transport and direct water to various places in Istria. Using aqueducts as a way of transporting water where it was needed had been used across the vast Roman Empire for many centuries.
