Pont du Gard Detail (1976)

Detail of the brickwork on the second tier of the Pont du Gard. Early morning sun illuminates the inside of an arch. Roman stone masons cut the limestone blocks precisely enough to fit together without mortar. Twenty-three kilometers from Nîmes, the bridge was part of the 50-kilometer Roman aqueduct that provided the water supply for the Roman colonia of Nemausus.
