When I visited in 2002, recent floods had washed out other local bridges and closed the left-bank parking. This ancient structure was not even threatened.Its size, its age, and its beauty make this Roman monument mind-blowing. On the Pont and on the bank above it, I was awestruck by the engineering of the aqueduct and this bridge especially.I sat and enjoyed the autumn view and considered the Roman empire: the emperors, the architects, the overseers, and the slaves from Gaul or Egypt or even farther away.
