Milestone of the Via Domitia near Rodilhan

The Via Domitia is a roman road built approximately 118 b.c. which can still be visited today along most of its full length. Partly the via domitia is still used as a road today, while other sections may be discovered in the open landscape. I have travelled the full lenth of the old raod in 2005 and collected gps-coordinates and photographs along the way.

The Via Domitia goes all the way from the Rhone river of France near Beaucaire to the Pyrenees, thereby passing through the french region of Languedoc. At both ends as well as in between the road was linked of coarse to the network of roman road. The via domitia, however, was indispensable for the development of this coastal region of France and still is today.

Section Beaucaire-Nimes

The roman road crossed the the river Rhone in Beaucaire, probably with a ferry. In the west of the city there are three pieces of road named "Chemin des Romains". Further west the roman road is today's D999. There is a milestone at D999 and D135.
