(GB) Over twenty centuries have passed since the construction of what is one of the best known civil engineering feats in the world. The structure is a symbol of the power of the Roman civilisation. It has traversed the ages standing as a sort of eternal totem through successive wars, industrial revolutions or climatic problems without ever seeming to be affected. Three rows of arches A real marvel for technicians and scientists and a masterpiece admired by artists and visitors from all over the world. Culminating at a height of 49 metres, the Pont du Gard is the major structure along the Nîmes aqueduct. It is the highest aqueduct bridge ever built by the Romans and is remarkably well conserved. It has 3 rows of arches: 6 on the bottom row, 11 on the second level and 47 on the top row. http://www.pontdugard.fr/ VALPARD FILMS Bonus: Aven Marzal http://valpardfilms.awardspace.com
