Provence Barbegal Roman Aqueduct and Mill

The Barbegal Aqueduct and Mill (Aqueduc de Barbegal) are the remains of a Roman mill and part of the aqueduct that ran from the Alpilles to Arles. In Roman times 16 water wheels powered the mill. This is not a well marked and popular tourist attraction, but is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Many parts of the aqueduct are well preserved and you can clearly see where the mill sat on a steep hillside, powered by the water from the aqueduct.

Location: France - Provence - Bouches-du-Rhone - Fontvieille
These remains are on a small road between Fontvieille and Arles. Take the D33 south from Fontvieille. Turn left at the intersection of D82. The road sign says "Aqueduc Romain".
