Let's danse on the bridge


Classified as a UNESCO world heritage site, this medieval town has a lot to discover and see, including the Palace of the Popes ( an imposing and majestic structure emanating the power and influence of the Catholic church ), the famous bridge, the remparts and fascinating narrow streets of the old town.

FYI: upside down. The medieval Saint Benazet bridge is worldwilde famous thanks to a popular childwood song entitled "sur le pont d'Avignon". In the song, people are dancing on the bridge, but more certainly, danses used to take place under the bridge, on the river banks. Open air parties or "guinguettes" as we say in french was a working class tradition.
