With a children’s song, “Sur le Pont D’Avignon”, inspired by, the bridge is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was built between 1177 and 1185 and was destroyed 40 years later in the invasion of Louis VIII. It is one of the main sights of the city. The entrance includes an audio guide that tells the history and legend of the place.

In short: A young pastor meets Jesus, who asks him to build a bridge over the river. When he shared the history with the people of the city, he is ridiculed and challenged to carry a huge block of stone to the river’s edge. If he succeeded, he would be allowed to build. Done, the boy miraculously lifted the block and carried it to the shore. The people believed that he had divine help and from there had the support of the whole city in the construction of the bridge.

Tip: the sunset on the bridge is more than special
