Roman aqueduct bridge. This is the Pont du Gard, which straddles the River Gard near Nimes, France. It was built during the Roman Empire between 15 BC and 14 AD. The bridge is 275 metres long and 49 metres high. The whole aqueduct was 50 kilometres long when built and supplied Nimes with water. The water channel is at the top, with the main bridge at the bottom. The projecting blocks seen on the pillars of the middle arches supported scaffolding during the construction of the aqueduct. The Pont du Gard is a World Heritage Site.
