Avignon at Night

The Pont Saint-Bénézet, more familiarly known as the Pont d’Avignon, is famous medieval bridge in the town of Avignon and inspired the children’s song, Sur Le Pont d’Avignon. In 1995, the four surviving arches of the bridge, together with the Palais des Papes and Cathédrale Notre-Dame des Doms were classified as a World Heritage Site. The night was beautiful and many people came out to enjoy the sunset and the Rhone lit up.
