Avignon Bridge

A major witness to the history of Avignon and the Rhône, the Pont d'Avignon (Saint-Bénézet), a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built from the 12th century onwards.

The Pont d'Avignon was for centuries the only passage that allowed to cross the Rhone between Lyon and the Mediterranean. Mistreated by waters, wars and time, he retained only 4 arches out of the 22 initials.

Today, an emblematic monument of the City of the Popes, the Pont d'Avignon has toured the world in images and songs!

Discover the human and scientific adventure of building the famous Pont d'Avignon with touch tablets, a digital reenactment and an audio guide specially designed for children aged 8 to 16.

Today, the Pont d'Avignon welcomes 400,000 visitors a year. It is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
