Fréjus (France)

Open channel behind the castellum

At the end of the rue de Bel-air in Fréjus the remains of the castellum divisorium (distribution basin) can be find (nr 8 on the map), now overbuilt by a renovated house. After the castellum a part of the aqueduct water was distributed in an open (!) channel of which the remains can be find in the same rue de Bel-air. In many Roman water systems inner-city distribution took place by means of lead pipes.
