At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Graceful and imposing Roman acqueduct bridge.

Classified as a World Heritage of Humanity site by Unesco, the Pont du Gard continues to fascinates hikers, artists, history and architecture buffs.

The Pont du Gard was built on three levels, with 6, 11 and 47 arches. With a total length of 360m, it rises to over 48m above the river Gardon, which it spans gracefully.

The centerpiece of the Nîmes aqueduct, the Pont du Gard is the highest aqueduct bridge from Roman times which is still standing. It is impressive for its height and for the width of its arches (over 24m for largest arches!) but also for its technical scope: the project would have taken a thousand workers three to five years to build, and used 50,400 tons of stone from the nearby quarry of Estel.

Nestled in a Mediterranean natural environment covering 165 hectares, the Pont du Gard offers several spaces for visitors to discover: a museum, a cinema, a children's area, and also an outdoor exhibition.
