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!

Pont Saint Benezet, Avignon Reviews

  • Well for those that are not aware this is not a complete bridge. The reason for this is magnificently explained in the exposition just before you get onto the bridge itself. Make sure that you go downstairs to see the visualisations of how the bridge may have looked like at its best. Don't forget to collect a free audio guide at the ticket office, it will make your visit all the more interesting.

  • It is a heritage indeed. but such price for this particular story behind this bridge? I’m not sure if I want to contribute my cash again such poor illustration and not so appealing explanations. Scenery is great. Better take the combined ticket (palace+bridge) if you are going anyways.

  • Remains of a 22 arch bridge with the river flowing through. Good start to your ascent to view the Papal Palace. Some lavender fields in the foreground make for a postcard picture

  • The bridge is pretty cool and has an interesting history. The audio guide is a must if you want to learn about why the bridge was built. You won't need to spend much time here so make sure to purchase the combination ticket for the bridge and the Pope's Palace. You'll save some money by getting both, and the Palace will take a good amount of time to walk through.

  • Wonderful experience. Audio guides are available in English and multiple other languages. It's more that just a bridge. There is a lot of history outlining how people in the middle ages were able to constuct complex bridges before the advent of engineering (i.e., planning extensively with paper designs). A team of researchers apparently pieced together a digital reconstruction (3D model) over the past few years which was really cool. Worth checking out and the price of admission.
