  • Always in our tour of Nîmes, passing through the Castellum. Pity that it is not maintained and that there is more trash than to monument

  • The water on the individual lines of the Roman living quarters was distributed in the Castellum aquae, including you has been inferred Gard from a source in the mountains 50 km over the aqueduct Pont, could cover the water requirements of Roman Nîmes.

  • The Roman aqueducts expired in the called Castellum aquae or what is the same, a distributor or a large tank of supply which departed the strands carrying the water up to the sources and other points of service in town. Nimes is quite well preserved and allows you to view input and the different outputs of water to their destinations.

  • An interesting diversion, right by the old town
  • 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.
  • Very interesting, the remainins of a roman water distribution system
  • It is one of those forgotten all over the heritage of the city, a Roman castellum of engineering was the finishing point of the aqueduct of the city and from where it spread out the running water of Nemausus. Despite being indicated in the plans are lacking a more detailed explanation. The view from the top at the University would be pretty impressive if you could access.

  • Historic site free and free. The monument is not impressive but it is rare to see a castellum (there would be only one of Pompeii in addition to Nîmes).
