A Bridge to Nowhere
The Pont Saint-Bénézet, also known as the Pont d’Avignon, is a medieval bridge in Avignon, in southern France. Originally a wooden bridge spanning the Rhone, the bridge was rebuilt in stone beginning in 1234. It had 22 stone arches when completed. The bridge was abandoned in the mid-17th century because the arches collapsed during floods. Today, only four arches and the gatehouse on the Avignon end of the bridge survive.
