  • Well kept, because buried under the earthworks of the company Vauban, it does not look, but it's the arrival of the aqueduct that passes through the Pont du Gard
    View original
  • Still called "castellum divisorum" old Roman basin responsible to receive water from the Pont du Gard and divide and spread the water in different neighborhoods of the city of Nîmes. Very interesting to see in a whole circuit borrowed by the running water of the time

  • not a lot to look at here but if you understand this is the other end of the aquaduct that crosses the pont du gard it is worth seeing  more »

  • Very interesting, the remainins of a roman water distribution system
  • If you realize that this is where all the water that flowed over Pont du Gard entered Roman Nimes, this is interesting. However there isn't much left.
  • Castellum, point of arrival of the aqueduct of Nîmes, is a rare remnant. To power the water city, built in the middle of the 1st c. ad a 50 Km aqueduct bridge of Gard is a prestigious witness. From this basin circular water, cut in the rock (5.90 m in diameter, 1.40 m deep), with lead pipes bringing water into public fountains and the different neighbourhoods of the city. This extra water intake contributed to sit the prestige of Nîmes, to give him comfort and lifestyle to the Roman. Source: City of Nimes
