The Pont du Gard

The Pont du Gard was part of the famous Roman aqueduct 50 km long which was built under Emperor Claudius around 50 AD. This aqueduct was built to meet the water needs of Nîmes City. The water came from a source upstream and came pouring in Nîmes City in the ducts of a water tower called Castellum Divisarium.


Le Pont du Gard faisait partie du célèbre aqueduc romain, long de 50 km, qui fut érigé sous l'Empereur Claude autour de 50 après Jésus Christ. Cet aqueduc a été construit pour répondre aux besoins en eau de la ville de Nîmes. L’eau arrivait d’une source en amont, et venait se déverser dans les conduits du Castellum Divisarium à Nîmes.

Joe,

It is smaller than this one of San Francisco but it is 2000 years old and was built by the Romans in order to supply water to the neighbouring city! There is a channel at the top which allowed the water to cross the river! Thank you very much for your Like + Fav.!

Cheers, Bernard
