Built in the 1st century AD, the Pont du Gard is undoubtedly the most spectacular part of the aqueduct, and features in UNESCO’s world heritage list.
Roman builders constructed a bridge with amazing dimensions to cross the Gardon valley: 275 metres long, 48 metres high (the highest example from Roman times) with three levels of superimposed arcades.
