Pont Saint Benezet - Review

Pont Saint Benezet is a popular medieval bridge which stretches between Villeneuve-Jes-Avignon and Avignon. It was built around 1177 to 1185. The original bridge had collapsed during the Albigensian Crusade and then rebuilt with 22 stone arches. The bridge was abandoned during mid-17th century. There were four arches built on the bridge around 1345 by Pope Clement VI. This made it stronger and a must visit attraction is Avignon.

A UNESCO world heritage!

  • This was a wonderful experience. Walking down the half remaining bridge made me feel like walking down the roads of history. It is very well restored and audio guide is very useful. The staffs were a bit overloaded. Maybe more people is needed to manage this place. The elevator was not working. In a normal situation this is absolutely fine and I wouldn't even look for it. But with a baby and a stroller it was needed. So we had to keep it at the reception area.

  • Did you know there is a song about this place? Look it up! I can't get the song out of my head like I can't get Avignon out of my head. Southern France is magical in a way that is impossible to describe. Lavender fields, citrus fruits, and cozy towns surround this impressive structure.

  • A nice little bit of culture, takes about 30 min to read everything and listen to the audio guide. Especially the video and 3D Animation explaining how they digitally reconstructed the bridge was very interesting. Audio Guides are available in multiple languages. It’s a little crowded though.

  • Very impressive building, especially given its age of about 1100 years (they started building it in 9xx a.d.) I was in Avignon 36 years ago as a "know it all" 16 year old teenager hitchhiking through Europe and vowing not to do the "tourist thing". I was such an idiot!!! This will be an unforgettable memory for me.

  • It's a pretty nice view of the river and comes with a sort of interesting commentary. The 5€ fee to walk into a bridge makes it less than worth it. You're better off taking the free ferry across the river for some good photos of the town.
