Vers-Pont-du-Gard

The Pont du Gard

During your holidays at La Maison d’Ulysse, do not miss the Pont du Gard, one of the wonders of antiquity. Classified as a national monument in 1840 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it was built around the 1st century AD. It is the most grandiose part of a Roman aqueduct that led the waters from Uzès to Nîmes. In the Middle Ages, it was used as a road bridge. Its exceptional architecture, the highest in the Roman world, is composed of three floors. It has withstood many floods and benefited from regular restorations.
