Pont Julien, Bonnieux

4.3
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Bonnieux
The Pont Julien is a Roman stone arch bridge over the Calavon river, in the south-east of France, dating from 3 BC. The supporting columns are notable for openings to allow floodwater to pass through. It is located in the territory of the commune of Bonnieux, north of the village of the same name, and 8 km west of Apt. Originally, it was built on the Via Domitia, an important Roman road which connected Italy to the Roman territories in France. It was used for car traffic until 2005, when a replacement bridge was built to preserve it from wear and tear. This amounts to approximately 2000 years of uninterrupted use.

  • Loved my Latin classes so interested in all things Roman...interesting little stop along the road. Nothing to go out of the way for though.  more »
  • A Roman bridge that is so well-built that it used for all traffic until 2005. Do you like Roman remains, it is worth seeing.

  • A friendly environment for a Roman bridge on the Coulon (or the Calavon) is according to... the place is conducive to the picnic or the exploration of the river bed. There is a little water in winter and summer. A few kilometres from Bonnieux (poorly indicated) this small Roman work is perfectly restored and maintained, this is worth a visit.
