    Amazing not only for lovers of Roman architecture, but an engineering class. The ruins of the old water distribution system of Nimes is extraordinary.

    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
