The Aqueduct was built in 1857 to enable the Canal de Carpentras to cross the valley.
The irrigation canal starts in the Durance near Mérindol and waters the Comtat plain before flowing into the Ouvèze.
To run through the land, the building of 2 aqueducts was required: one above the Sorgue and a smaller one to span Val St Nicolas.
It is the main overhead construction over the Canal de Carpentras.
