The Pont du Gard is one of the wonders of Antiquity, classified as a World Heritage Site by Unesco.


It is the most grandiose part of an aqueduct which led, over 50 km, the waters of Uzès to Nîmes.
If Rome had 1000 baths at the height of its glory, we understand that the Romans having set their sights on Nîmes, could not be satisfied with the source of the Fountain.
To find the 20,000 m3 needed each day for the capital of the Augustan colony, they went, in the middle of the 1st century, to the source of the Eure, near Uzès.
Through scrubland and ditches, the ancient engineers had to build a succession of bridges and tunnels to reach Nîmes.

The resulting Aqueduct runs for 50 kilometers with a total drop of only 17 meters !!
The feat says a lot about the quality of the builders, as does the most famous work on the route, the Pont du Gard and its 49 arches.
Listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it is a book of records in itself.
At its summit, 275 meters long, 49 high, blocks some of which exceed 2m3 and in total no doubt more than 50,000 tonnes of stones, it was designed to successfully resist the wild floods of the Gardon.
Today, the site harmoniously arranged with museum, exhibitions, films, children's area and media library, holds hands down the promise of an unforgettable visit.

Guided tours: PLEASE NOTE LIMITED PLACES.
In addition to the day pass or as a single product, it is possible to take a guided tour of the Bridge for a privileged discovery of the Roman canal.
During the visit, the group is guided to the last level of the monument, in the pipe where the water circulated during the operation of the aqueduct.
