Pont du Diable, Saint-Jean-de-Fos
(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
One of many bridges in France known as the "Devil's Bridge,"  Pont du Diable was constructed by Benedictine monks in the 11th century and has been designated as a World Heritage Site. Spanning a steep gorge over the Hérault River, the structure created a link between the abbeys at Aniane and Gellone. It was widened and raised around 1770, but retains its original shape and structure.

  • It's a legend sometimes in flood period, the wrath of the devil seems to wake up and his scream popping up from the bottom of the chasm. It is as well as for very many years, pilgrims and people passing through who were crossing the bridge new stones to throw them in the river hoping to leave the devil inside.

  • Parking 10 min walk, we finally arrived at the famous bridge. The setting is sublime. In good weather, a reflection of the good on the water below is the most beautiful effect

  • Great place. Amazing views and had a free little wine tasting in the tourist shop. Wine was OK. Swim was good - water was fresh for a hot day. Little bit further down you had guys on a tight rope and jumping on from the rocks. Loved it.
  • It was the height of the summer season and so this place was packed! And its a shame because its a really nice place, great to relax, go for a swim. We rented the canoes and went up the river and this was really fun too. Beautiful place, but too many people!
  • Beautiful bridge with canoes to rent and a lovely place to cool off on a hot day. Easy access by bus or car
  • Great swimming and an amazing bridge. We hired canoes and went some way upstream. Lack of toilets nearby was a bit difficult
  • Amazing view, nice beach giving on the bridge. There's a mandatory fee for parking though (5€).
