Small village of Gard, Vers-Pont-du-Gard is crossed by the Gardon and is located in the triangle Avignon-Nîmes-Uzès where is located the famous bridge of Gard. Its name, the commune, draws it from a corner stone called "Stone of Vers" and used in the aqueduct built by the Romans in the 1st century and crossing the village. Moreover, a stone quarry is still visible today. In the eleventh century, the village took another face with the construction of a castle and the houses nestled around it and the church. The aqueduct had disappeared. Later in history, the town moved towards the weaving of silk and made it its main activity.
