Photo Scrapbook: Pont du Gard Aqueduct

After the morning in Avignon and lunch onboard the River Royale, we traveled by bus through the Languedoc vineyards to reach the Pont du Gard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985. The tri-level aqueduct has stood over the Gardon Valley since the middle of the 1st century AD. It was constructed without the use of mortar in a period of 3 years by 1,000 workers.
