  • Bridge of stone of an only arch that gives access to the town of Ceret. You can cross walk. It is very well preserved. History: The construction of the bridge began in 1321 and finished in 1341. It was built with funds from the city of Céret, aided by neighboring peoples. It was partially rebuilt in the 18th century. Between 1718 and 1762 was several repairs. It began with the rehabilitation of the South buttress. In 1735, the road was rehabilitated, cracks were sealed and the bedside walls and buttresses rose. These works were completed six years more afternoon. In 1750 it was launched the renovation of the retaining walls of the Avenue bridge from the side of Perpignan while that proceeded to the same renovation of the side of Ceret in 1762. The French Government proclaimed it a historic monument in 1840. The name's the same "bridge of the devil" comes from a legend similar to the of other bridges of the devil in that same Devil built the bridge in Exchange for taking the first soul to the cruzara.
