This Aqueduc is a little off the main roads but well worth visiting. Although it is incomplete in many parts, it gives you a good idea of how Roman ingenuity brought water to the people and crops.

These ruins are terrific, a very peaceful stroll next to an olive grove. It is great to explore these, we had the area all to ourselves. When you get to the end, there is a great view of the area.

We walked there from center fontvieille through the forest. It was a nice walk and the aqueduct is still beautifull to see, a well kept secret if you ask me. Not too crowdy and you can check it out at ease. A must do when...More

We enjoyed exploring the ruins. The aqueduct originally ended at the hillside, where it fed a series of water mills (long gone.)

Among the olive groves, there are the remains of the Roman Aqueduct of Barbegal. It did carried the water from the mountain of Alpilles to the city of Arles some 50km away. Well worth seeing.

We walked through the forest from the mills. It is a nice walk. The ruins are interesting. When you follow them to the far end, they run through the rocks, and there is a panoramic view.

Nice to visit with no problems but beware the thieves. We were cycling and pulled over and less than 5 metres away a handbag was snatched off on of our bikes. Brazen thieves in broad daylight targetting tourists. Beware!!
