Avignon bridge

The Saint Benezet bridge, also simply known as Avignon Bridge, is an emblem of the city, along with the Palace of Popes. The bridge was built to join the city with the palace, with Villenueve les Avignon with the other side of the Rhone river. The Popes built their fortified residence on the other side of the river and they needed easy access to the palace.
The construction was inspired by Saint Benezet, a shepherd, who according to legend, was guided by angels to build it. Now there's only a piece of the bridge because the river washed it away. You can visit it, there are several chapels nearby. The Cardinals prayed to be able to pass through there. There was also an entry fee of 4 euros.
The bridge inspired a famous french children's song, that you can hear in the bridge's little museum.

"Sur le pont d'avignon on y danse, on...

"Sur le pont d'Avignon On y danse, on y danse, Sur le pont d'Avignon On y danse tout en rond" ... Contrary to what is stated in the famous nursery rhyme comes from an operetta ottecentesca by Adolphe Adam, "messieurs les beaux" and "les belles dames" danced not so much over the Bridge of Avignon, too tight to make farandoles and sarabande, as below, along banks of the Rhone. The Bridge of Avignon has its roots in the legend, according to which in 1177 the young shepherd Bénezet arrived at Avignon, saying that he was sent by God to build a bridge. Having dispelled the doubts of the bishop and of the inhabitants, began the construction of the Bridge of Avignon hosting, halfway, the chapel of the Popes were standing Bénezet at which to pray and give alms. In the Middle Ages the Bridge Saint Benezet became a transit point for pilgrims coming from Spain and Italy. Following the collapse of some of the arches in the seventeenth century, the bridge was never restored and, in its place, the city of Avignon is connected to Villeneuve Lez Avignon and Les Angles from Pont Daladier and the Pont de l'Europe. The visit to the Saint Benezet Bridge includes a small museum about the history of this historic monument objects, documents and illustrations of the period. If you plan to visit the Bridge of Avignon, you should buy the combined ticket that includes, in addition to the bridge, also the entrance to the Palace of the Popes.

"Sur le pont d'Avignon,
On y danse, on y danse,
Sur le pont d'Avignon,
On y danse tout en rond"...
Contrariamente a quanto recita la famosa filastrocca tratta da un'operetta ottecentesca di Adolphe Adam, "les beaux messieurs" e "les belles dames" ballavano non tanto sopra il Ponte di Avignone, troppo stretto per fare farandole e sarabande, quanto sotto, lungo gli argini del Rodano.

Il Ponte di Avignone affonda le sue radici nella leggenda, secondo cui nel 1177 il giovane pastore Bénezet giunse ad Avignone dicendo di essere stato mandato da Dio per costruirvi un ponte.
Dopo aver fugato le perplessità del Vescovo e degli abitanti, iniziò la costruzione del Ponte di Avignone che ospita, a metà strada, la cappella di Bénezet presso cui sostavano i Papi per pregare e lasciare l'elemosina.

Nel Medioevo il Ponte Saint Bénezet divenne luogo di transito per i pellegrini provenienti dalla Spagna e dall'Italia.
In seguito al crollo di alcune arcate nel Seicento, il ponte non fu più restaurato ed, al suo posto, la città di Avignone è collegata a Villeneuve Lez Avignon e Les Angles dal Pont Daladier e dal Pont de l'Europe.

La visita al Ponte Saint Bénezet comprende un piccolo museo sulla storia di questo monumento storico attraverso oggetti, documenti ed illustrazioni d'epoca.

Se pensate di visitare il Ponte di Avignone, vi conviene acquistare il biglietto cumulativo che comprende, oltre al Ponte, anche l'ingresso al Palazzo dei Papi.

St benezet bridge is like an extensio...

St Benezet Bridge is like an extension of the Palace of the Popes in Avignon. The entire assembly is Heritage seems cling hard to the ground to keep from flying when he roars the Mistral, the wonderful wind that travels through Provence Rhone. Wonderful medieval bridge which only a portion is preserved. It seems unfinished, but perhaps there filed its appeal. The views from the bridge are awesome. Besides the great and hypnotic look Rhone, you can enjoy the best views of the historic city. There are many reasons why this bridge has international fame, but especially for the children's song we've ever sung and you can hear in a visit to the Bridge. Notice that teneís pets: As in most parts of France, here too we enter with our dog all a gesture that always appreciate it greatly facilitates our travels.

El puente de St Bénézet es como una extensión del Palacio de los Papas de Aviñón. Todo el conjunto que es Patrimonio de la Humanidad parece agarrarse con fuerza al suelo para no salir volando cuando ruge el Mistral, el maravilloso viento que recorre la Provenza francesa a través del Ródano.

Maravilloso puente mediaval del que se conserva sólo una parte. Parece inconcluso, pero quizás, ahí, radique su atractivo.

Las vistas desde el puente son impresionantes. Además de contemplar el grandioso e hipnótico Ródano, se puede disfrutar de las mejores panorámicas del conjunto histórico de la ciudad.

Muchos son los motivos por los que este puente tiene fama internacional, pero sobre todo por la canción infantil que hemos cantado alguna vez y que puedes escuchar en la visita al Puente.

Aviso para los que teneís mascotas: Como en la mayoría de lugares de Francia, aquí también pudimos entrar con nuestro perro todo un gesto que siempre agradecemos pues facilita mucho nuestros viajes.

A childhood memory

Do you remember your childhood when we used to sing this beautiful song together with the simple words: "Sur le pont d'Avignon L'on y danse, on the y danse, Sur le pont d'Avignon L'on y danse tous en rond ". Of course, you can not forget. Alright! Now let's get to the bridge, after seeing the Papal Palazo here you will find a place where you will understand the game from the kids and some information about the history between the memory of 'childhood will be strong. Once it was the only bridge over the Rhone, destroyed during periods of flood and then ricostruitto, today we can see only four arcatti of 22 originals and a small chapel, very special, two-story preserved the relics of St Benezet. It's nice to feel my feet touching the bridge, do not ever give up on the audio guide, I look at the Rhone, a beautiful day with the sun .... and singing ... "Sur le pont d'Avignon L'on y danse, l ' on y danse ..... "

Un ricordo d'infanzia

Vi ricordate della vostra infanzia quando cantavamo insieme questa canzone bellissima con delle parole semplicissime:
„Sur le pont d'Avignon,
L'on y danse, l'on y danse,
Sur le pont d'Avignon
L'on y danse tous en rond”.
Certo, non si può dimenticare. Va bene! Adesso cerchiamo di arrivare sul ponte, dopo aver visto Il Palazo Papale qui troverai un posto dove capirai il gioco dai bambini e fra qualche informazioni sulla storia il ricordo d' infanzia sara forte. Una volta era il solo ponte sul Rodano, distrutto nei periodi di inondazione e poi ricostruitto, oggi possiamo vedere solo quatro arcatti di 22 originali e una cappelletta, molto particolare, a due piani che conservava le relique di St Benezet. E bello sentire i miei passi che toccano il ponte, non rinuncio mai al audioguida, guardo Rodano, una giornata bellissima con sole.... e canto... „Sur le pont d'Avignon,
L'on y danse, l'on y danse.....”

Il Ponte St Bénezet fu edificato nel 1185 ed è stato ricostruito più volte a causa delle inondazioni; l’ultima piena del XVII ne distrusse oltre la metà ed ora restano solo quattro pittoresche arcate ancora percorribili. Bellissima la vista sui bastioni e sul Palazzo dal punto più estremo del ponte. L’ingresso è a pagamento e conviene acquistare il biglietto cumulativo con il Palazzo dei Papi.

Sur le pont d'avignon ...

The Pont Saint Benezet, called Pont d'Avignon is a medieval bridge over (or rather spanned) the Rhone River in Avignon. The bridge was built during the 12th century, and he is left with only a few arches and therefore no longer reaches the opposite side of the river. It was opened to traffic in 1184, and served as such a link between the residences of the cardinals and the Palais des Papes. He was for many years the only bridge across the Rhone between Lyon and the Mediterranean Sea. The bridge collapsed under the pressure of many floods between 1603 and 1669. Today the bridge is a popular tourist attraction in Avignon, visible from the banks of the Rhone. However, if you want to walk and dance to it, the price is 4 € 50.

Sur le pont d'avignon...

Le Pont Saint Bénezet, appelé Pont d'Avignon, est un pont médiéval qui enjambe (ou plutôt enjambait) la rivière du Rhône à Avignon.
Le pont a été construit pendant le 12ème siècle, et il ne lui reste plus que quelques arches et n'atteint donc plus le côté opposé de la rivière. Il fut ouvert à la circulation en 1184, et servait notamment de lien entre les résidences des cardinaux et le Palais des Papes. Il a été pendant de nombreuses années le seul et unique pont traversant le Rhône entre la ville de Lyon et la mer Méditerranée.
Le Pont s'effondra sous la pression des nombreuses crues entre 1603 et 1669.

Aujourd'hui le pont est une attraction touristique populaire à Avignon, visible depuis les rives du Rhone. Cependant, si vous voulez marcher et danser dessus, le tarif est de 4€50.

Pont d'avignon

The Saint Benezet bridge more simply known as the "Pont d'Avignon", was built in the twelfth century and is located opposite the Palais des Papes. It can be visited, but access is limited to 200 people, so we had to wait a bit before entering. Equipped with an audio guide, we discover the history of this famous bridge walking on the drawbridge, observing the two chapels Saint Nicolas Saint-Benezet and built on each other at the second its four remaining arches ... Awesome! At the end of the bridge, I danced with my father because now I can say: "I danced on the bridge of Avignon". Note that a formula rate, including the "Pont St. Benezet + Palais des Papes" is available.

Pont d'avignon

Le pont Saint Bénezet plus simplement connu sous le nom de "Pont d'Avignon", a été construit durant le XIIe siècle et est situé en face du Palais des Papes. Il peut être visité, mais l'accès est limité à 200 personnes, nous avons donc dû attendre un peu avant d'y accéder. Muni d'un audio-guide, nous découvrons l'histoire de ce célèbre pont en marchant sur le pont-levis, en observant les deux chapelles -Saint Bénézet et Saint Nicolas- construites l'une sur l'autre au niveau de la deuxième de ses quatres arches restantes... Impressionnant !
A l'extrémité du pont, j'ai dansé avec mon père parce que maintenant je peux dire : "J'ai dansé sur le pont d'Avignon !".

À noter qu'un tarif incluant la formule "Pont Saint Bénezet + Palais des Papes" est disponible.

I tell half-bridge ....

The Avignon Bridge today is a tour that you can do, because as not worth bridge concept. Half was destroyed and left the rest alone. From its farthest from the shore has a wonderful view.

Medio puente diría yo....

El puente de Aviñón hoy por hoy es una visita turística lo que se puede hacer, pues como concepto de puente no vale. La mitad fue destruido y solo queda el resto. Desde su parte mas alejada de la orilla tiene vistas muy bonitas.
