Additional information

Pont d’Avignon, also known as Pont Saint-Bénezet, is a famous medieval bridge located in the city of Avignon in the south of France. The bridge was built in the 12th century, but was repeatedly damaged by flooding of the Rhône River over the centuries. The bridge originally spanned the entire width of the river, but today only four arches remain, ending abruptly in the middle of the river.

The bridge is famous for the children’s song “Sur le Pont d’Avignon” (“On the Bridge of Avignon”), which describes the tradition of dancing on the bridge during the annual festival of Saint Bénézet. The bridge is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a popular tourist attraction in the region. Visitors can walk across the remaining arches and visit the small museum dedicated to the bridge’s history.
