Experience Candlelight at the Pont du Gard

This year, some thirty intimate candlelit concerts will be held at the foot of the majestic Pont du Gard, an ancient marvel and World Heritage Site.

Candlelight concerts at the Pont du Gard

These evenings offer the public the chance to rediscover live acoustic music and experience a timeless moment in an exceptional historical and natural setting.
The concept of these evenings is to create a spectacular and unique setting, a serene atmosphere of candlelight and an intense musical score across a whole range of genres: from classical to jazz, pop, film soundtracks and ballet.


A tribute to Hans Zimmer and a tribute to Queen will open these concert events on the Pont du Gard site on 24 May.
