On the Bridge of Avignon – Sur le Pont d’Avignon

From the Pont Saint-Bénézet (better known as Bridge of Avignon / Pont d’Avignon), you have a beautiful view on the old city of Avignon. The Papal Palace is clearly visible. The Pont d’Avignon was built in the 12th century and originally 899m long. It had 22 arches, but only 4 of them still stand and reach into the river Rhone. The Bridge of Avignon once has been the only fixed connection between Lyon and the Mediterranean.
