Jardin des plantes de Montpellier is a 4,5ha historical botanical garden and arboretum. The garden was established 1653 by a letter patent of King Henri IV. It is France’s oldest botanical garden. The garden was expanded in the 19th century. It’s orangery was designed by Claude-Mathieu Delagardette (1762805) and completed in 1804.
The water reservoir tower Château d’eau du Peyrou was build 1768 by architect Henri Pitot and is still in use. The water is coming via the aquaeduct of St. Clement, which I have shown already some time ago. The building is part of the Promenade du Peyrou, a park within Montpellier.
This 880m long aqueduct is brand new compared to the Roman aquaeducts: It was bult 1772 and is filling a water reservoir (Chateau dau) for fountains and public water intakes. Architects were Henri Pitot, Donnat and Jean Antoine Giral.

Nidelva is the name of Trondheim’s river which passes through the city. Here you can see the beautiful wooden houses of the city which are located in both asides of the river. When it is calm really you can not distinguish between the real stuff and their reflection in the nidelva. Nidelven has its very own song, Nidelven Stille og Vakker du er (“Nidelven [how] Still and Beautiful you are”).
