Additional information

The bridge spans the Gardon River and is made up of three tiers of arches, with the tallest tier standing over 49 meters high. It is one of the best-preserved examples of Roman engineering and architecture in the world, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The aqueduct was built using the innovative technique of using a combination of stone, cement, and lead pipes to transport water over long distances. The Pont du Gard itself was used to carry the water across the river, while the rest of the aqueduct ran underground or at ground level.

Today, visitors can explore the Pont du Gard and learn about its history and significance through a variety of tours and exhibits. The site also includes a museum, a botanical garden, and several hiking trails that offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Overall, the Pont du Gard is a remarkable example of ancient engineering and a testament to the ingenuity and skill of the Roman Empire. It is a must-see destination for anyone interested in history, architecture, or engineering.
