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.

  • 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.

  • An unmissable spot in Avignon. You may heard of it if you were taught the famous children's song. Our if you like world history. You can just see it from afar or pay the €5 audio tour to walk it to learn about the history of this centuries old bridge. It takes 45 minutes. Not advisable for small kids as they can fit between the railings.

  • It's a beautiful place to visit. You need to buy a 5 euro ticket to go to the bridge but you can get a nice view of river Rhone from there.
