This 12th century Romanesque bridge crosses the river Orb. It is 5 metres long, 260 metres, and has 19 arches. It was never really structurally sound, and thus went through multiple renovations through the centuries. However, it is a magnificent building, especially considering the time it was built. For a long time, it was the only way to get to Toulouse from Provence without wetting your feet. That’s why they call it a historical monument now. If you’re going across on it on a vehicle, know that it is one way.

Tourist tip: stand on the Pont Neuf that runs parallel to this bridge, and click a picture of it.
