Avignon - Pont Saint Bénezet

June 15

On the ramparts near the Pope's Palace was the very nice Jardins des Doms, with a view of the old bridge partially spanning the Rhône river.  The Pont Saint Bénezet (aka Pont d'Avignon) was built in 1185, and most of it was washed away for the last time in the 1600's
