Pont Julien, Bonnieux
(4.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Magnificent Roman bridge on the via Domitia at the top of the Calavon, still used today by pedestrians and bikes. Parking right next door or accessible via the Green Lane

  • We had heard of the old Roman stone arch bridge and made it a point to see it firsthand. They say it dates to 3 BC and it looks like it. Near Bonnieux, it was a worthwhile stop. Autos are not allowed ...  more »

  • Very nice piece of Roman architecture. Well worth a stop for photo opportunity
  • Nice Roman bridge perfectly preserved. Worth a detour if you're driving or biking through the area.
  • It's Gallo-Roman...ancient...and still there after two millennia.
  • Old Roman bridge on the road from Rome to Madrid
  • Surprising that this bridge was still in use only 10 years ago (2005). It still looks in pristine condition. Although you can no longer drive over it, it is with a visit and three is free parking next to it for easy stopping.
