Vidourle

The Vidourle (French pronunciation: ​[viduʁl]; Vidorle in occitan) is a 95.0 km (59.0 mi) river in southern France that flows into the Mediterranean Sea in Le Grau-du-Roi.[1] Its source is in the Cévennes mountains, northwest of Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort, at Saint-Roman-de-Codières. It flows generally southeast. At Gallargues-le-Montueux, it was crossed by the old Roman road Via Domitia with the now ruined Roman bridge Pont Ambroix.
