In South of France, in the Gard department, in Vers-Pont-du-Gard, stands one of the most prestigious and extraordinary monuments of the Roman period that no one can match, Pont du Gard.
It is the highest aqueduct bridge ever built in antiquity and due to the excellent state of conservation, the majesty of the monument and the naturalistic beauties of the area it attracts more than a million visitors every year.
A marvel of Roman ingenuity, the Pont du Gard crosses the Gardon River dominating the entire valley.
Built around 19 BC, the bridge is 49 meters high and 275 long, with three vertical rows of arches ( 6 at the lowest level, 11 at the intermediate level and 35 at the upper level ).
The aqueduct had a flow of 20,000 cubic meters of water per day and has been active for 500 years.

Touring Pont du Gard
The monument we know today is only part of the aqueduct.
However, it is certainly one of the most incredible parts.
Indeed, beyond its visual aspect, this three-level passage crosses the Gardon.
If today such a monument may seem trivial, for the time it was a real undertaking.
Thus, Pont du Gard represents Roman influence in the province of Narbonne.
But also its power, economic and political later, Pont du Gard was abandoned.
However, interest in the aqueduct was revived relatively early, already in the XVI century.
Later, the population will be able to visit the Pont du Gard and the place thus becomes a mecca of French and world tourism.
Finally, since 1985, the Pont du Gard has been included in the Unesco World Heritage list.
