The famous Roman Bridge of Vaison la Romaine separates the medieval city from the modern city. Built in the 1st century AD, the work of art spans the Ouvèze.
The Roman Bridge of Vaison-la-Romaine is one of the city's major monuments.
Built in the 1st century AD, the work spans the Ouvèze and connects the city centre to the upper town, deploying a unique architecture, and its wide arch of 17 meters of opening.
A link between the medieval city and the lower city, it is the very symbol of Roman architectural genius.
Vaison-la-Romaine, a city of art, has a considerable heritage.
It covers the Middle Ages and the modern era, but it was in ancient times that the city owes its fame and its denomination of “la-Romaine” since 1924. The Gallo-Roman remains, spread over several sites, constitute the largest archaeological field in France open to the public.
