Roman aqueduct Pont du Gard, near Nimes, Languedoc, France, Europe. Unesco World Heritage site



Storybook-pretty Uzès is renowned for its Renaissance architecture, a reminder of the days when it was an important trading centre – especially for silk, linen and liquorice. But it also has strong Roman links: water was delivered here via the Pont du Gard aqueduct en route to Nîmes, 25km to the southwest.
