    Description:

    The bridge was finally put out of use by a catastrophic flood in 1668, which swept away much of the structure. It was subsequently abandoned and no more attempts were made to repair it. Since then, its surviving arches have successively collapsed or been demolished, and only four of the initial 22 arches remain intact today. The bridge’s construction was inspired by Saint Bénézet, a local shepherd boy who (according to tradition) was commanded by angels to build a bridge across the river….

    Description:

    This Roman bridge of arches built across the River Gardon, 3 km north-west of Remoulins, carries the late 1st-century BCE aqueduct that supplied water from the Fontaines d'Eure, near Uzès, to Nîmes, a distance of 50 km. It remains virtually intact, with three tiers of arches, rising to a height of 48.7 metres above the river, and measuring 273 metres long at the top. Mérimée (1803-1870), as inspector-general of historic monuments, was influential in arranging restoration work in 1843-1850.
