Pont Du Gard, France - Lakes

Lakes

2000 years ago over 1000 people spent 5 arduous years constructing the Pont du Gard - an extravagant collection of stones weighing up to 6 tons. Built completely without the use of mortar, which makes it even more remarkable, it was part of an almost 50 km conduit planned to carry water through the Gardon River valley to the Roman city of Nemausus (Nîmes). Yet for some reason, from the 4th century onwards its preservation was ignored, and even though it soon fell into absolute stupor, thousands gather today to wonder at what is considered one of the most excellent pieces of the Roman heritage. With plethora to do around, counting an breathtaking swim, the site is a major highlight of a stay in France.
