Avignon | Pont Saint-Bénézet and Palais des Papes
WI_fr065m.jpg Avignon | Palais des Papes and cathedralThumbnailsPrincipality of Monaco

View from Île de la Barthelasse in southeastern direction. This 12th-Century stone arch bridge once spanned both branches of the Rhône. Only four of the arches remain. The bridge is a major landmark of Avignon and has become famous through the 15th-Century folk song "Sur le pont d'Avignon". The cathedral and the Palais des Papes appear in the background of the photo.
