Arles November 2017 (not strictly in Arles but the same trip) - Pont du Gard

The magnificent Roman aqueduct, the  Pont du Gard... breathtaking, especially on a beautiful day, like the day I visited.

It's over 160ft high, and when it fell into disuse as an aqueduct... became a toll-bridge...

 ...rather puts Swinford toll-bridge to shame.

 Each arch was constructed independently to ensure flexibility to protect against subsidence...

...and they are beautiful, beautiful beautiful.
