about The Gier Aqueduct
The Gier Aqueduct was a Roman aqueduct used by the Gallo-Roman city of Lugdunum, which would later become the city of Lyon.
At the time, the Gier Aqueduct would have been one of four aqueducts supplying water to this important and highly populated city.
Today, the impressively restored remains of the Gier Aqueduct, with its stone arches, can be seen just south of Lyon, on the roadside in Chaponost.
