Geocache Description:


[FRANCAIS]
Découvrez des vestiges d'un aqueduc romain vieux de 2000 ans !
L'aqueduc du Gier était un des quatre qui alimentaient Lugdunum, capitale des Gaules.
Canal voûté, long de 86km pour un dénivelé de 105m, il comportait 11 tunnels, 30 ponts, 10 murs et files d'arches, 4 siphons avec des tuyaux en plomb et plus de 1000 regards de visites.
