Not far from the southern French city of Nîmes, the three-tiered Pont du Gard spans the Gard, a river. The Roman aqueduct, built in 19 bc, was part of a 60-kilometer-long (37-mile-long) network that carried water from nearby mountains to Nîmes. Having survived more than 2,000 years, the Pont du Gard still towers over the river.
