Pont d’ Avignon

A landmark of the city of Avignon, the bridge spanned the Rhône between Villeneuve-lés-Avignon and Avignon.  It was constructed in 1224, with 22 original arches.  In 1699, a catastrophic flood destroyed most of the bridge, leaving the four remaining arches.

A beautiful scene as the sun sets over the river!

Even more beautiful after sunset with the lights in the background!
