Additional information
The Gier Roman aqueduct

The Roman aqueduct of Gier is one of the four aqueducts that supplied water Lugdunum. Capturing the Gier water south of Saint-Chamond, he carried water 86 km to Fourvière. Several remains are still visible 2000 years later in Chaponost.

On the site of the Plat de l'Air is the longest section of aqueduct currently visible in France: a row of 72 arches stands majestically on the site. The row of arches ends with a hunting tank from which lead pipes led down the hill to the siphon bridge of Beaunant (site of Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon).

Site arranged - water point - bench - garbage cans - toilets.

Guided tours are organized by the Tourist Office of the Garon Valley, all year round for groups from 10 people and for individuals, at certain dates every month from April to October. You will discover on this occasion, the history, the architecture and the functioning of this exceptional monument.
