Weekend Reflections

Posting at Weekend Reflections

May 2019 - Avignon France

The Pont du Gard is an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge built in the first century AD to carry water over 50 km (31 mi) to the Roman colony of Nemausus (NĂ®mes). It crosses the Gardon River near the town of Vers-Pont-du-Gard in southern France. The Pont du Gard is the highest of all Roman aqueduct bridges, and one of the best preserved. It was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 1985 because of its historical importance.


  1. I suppose you showed the photo at the time and I saw it, but wow, is it an impressive structure.

    1. It was pouring rain at the time, so I wasn't feeling very impressed!

  2. ...this bridge is still standing and modern day bridge are falling down.

  3. Love it, Jackie. We walked the pedestrian walkway underneath. Been a while, thank you for memories.

  4. This is a beautiful photograph of this historic Roman aqueduct. Impressive architecture.
