About Le Pont Vieux, Beziers

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.

  • Very nice view of the city and saint nazaire cathedral. A must go photo spot in Beziers.

  • Nice medieval bridge, but lots of dog poo, litter and some shady characters hanging around.

  • Historical bridge

  • Quand j'y suis allé il y avait peu de circulation donc j'ai pu savourer avec un certain calme : La vue, le lieu où est installé le pont et son architecture ! Au top, merci !

  • La vue depuis le pont sur Beziers est superbe. Par contre, le pont est très dangereux pour les piétons. Il n'y a pas de barrières pour nous protéger des voitures. De plus, il y a des plots en béton tout les mètre ou quasiment qui sont assez imposants. Lorsque nous avons croisés un couple, mon ami a tapé le pied dans un plot (du fait qu'il n'y ai même pas 1m de largeur pour les pietons) et s'est cassé l'orteil... pas top pour les vacances..
