Little is known of the sources of the aqueduct of Orange. The remains of the aqueduct and its
substructure are visible adjacent to the town wall in the Avenue G. le Taciturne /
Rue des Vieux Remparts east of the famous Arch at the north side of the town.
I.A. Richmond wrote: "Wall and aqueduct ran mostly side by side, only coalescing when the latter became sufficiently high to run on top of the former. Both then aim for the arch where there must have been a town-gate" (Richmond 1933).
