Pont du Gard

The Pont du Gard is definitely an impressive site (unlike an aforementioned, totally famous French landmark). The Pont du Gard is an aqueduct in Provence, and a remnant of the Roman empire. For those not up on their French history, Provence was a Roman province and is an amalgam of French, Roman, and Greek culture.

Being a minimalist, I find it amazing that something so beautiful (and lasting) could be built with limited technology.
