Le Pont Saint-Bénezet, better known as Pont d'Avignon, has achieved world fame by a children's song. The bridge was built in the 12th century and the remaining part has survived some catastrophic floodings and battles. The original bridge consisted of 22 arches, but today only four of them remain, so the Pont Saint-Bénezet ends in the middle of nowhere!

Although the bridge IS very beautiful, they charge you with €4,- (or more) just to walk over it. My advice: just look at it.

Le Pont d'Avignon Sep 08, 2003
A famosa ponte da cantiga infantil. Sítio bonito mas não vale a pena pagar para subir.

This bridge was made famous by a chidren´s song. Pretty place but not worth paying to go up.
