Summary[edit]

Description
English: Pont du Gard, in Vers-Pont-du-Gard, Gard department, South France. The Pont du Gard is the most famous part of the roman aqueduct which carried water from Uzès to Nîmes until roughly the 9th century when maintenance was abandoned. The monument is 49m high and now 275m long (it was 360m when intact) at its top. It's the highest roman aqueduct, but also one of the best preserved (with the aqueduct of Segovia). The Pont du Gard is a UNESCO world heritage site since 1985.
Français : Le Pont du Gard, à Vers-Pont-du-Gard, département du Gard, région Languedoc-Roussillon, France. Le Pont du Gard (1er siècle C.E.) est la partie la plus célèbre de l'aqueduc romain qui conduisait l'eau d'Uzès à Nîmes, jusqu'au 9ème siècle où l'on cessa de l'entretenir. Le monument fait 49 mètres de haut et aujourd'hui 275 mètres de long (360 mètres quand il était intact). C'est l'aqueduc roman le plus haut, mais aussi, avec celui de Ségovie, l'un des mieux préservés. Le Pont du Gard est un site du patrimoine mondial de l'humanité de l'UNESCO depuis 1985.
