Pont du Gard

The Pont du Gard

Tourism

The UNESCO listed Roman aqueduct, the Pont du Gard is sure to impress. Built in the 1st century AD and towering nearly 50m above the riverbed, this should be a firmly on your daytrip list when visiting the Languedoc-Roussillon, Occitanie.

Built as part of a series of aqueducts supplying the then Roman city of Nîmes, the Pont du Gard is now a well deserved UNESCO world heritage listed site.

A truly beautiful construction built from soft yellow limestone which was harvested from the surrounding landscape, the bridge measures 360 metres across and is considered to be a technical masterpiece.

Don't miss a visit to the museum of the Pont du Gard, fascinating for anyone interested in Roman history or construction.
