Remains of the aqueduct


It all started in the 1st century AD. At that time, the Romans exploited an abundant water which takes its source at the edge of the Alzon.
Located in Uzès, to then be transported to Nîmes, via a 50 km long aqueduct, of which Pont-du-Gard was part.

Discovered in 1991 by a team of amateur archaeologists, the control basin is a masonry valve. He regulated the flow of water in the aqueduct.
This work is vulnerable. It is recommended not to enter the pipe or climb on the walls.

To fully appreciate the work, just go up on the observation deck and stand beyond the barrier.
This basin has never been restored. Its state of conservation is surprising.

According to archaeologists, the central part of the basin was surmounted by a peripheral path that allowed the guard to easily bypass it.
A roof protected the whole.
