Known the world over, the Pont du Gard, one of the wonders of antiquity, dominates this whole region of the Gard. It is the most well-preserved section of the aqueduct that once carried water, which was collected near Uzès, to Nîmes. Its ochre and gold-colored stones tower over the Gardon river, which flows underneath.
