Pont du Diable, Saint-Jean-de-Fos

4.4
#2 of 6 in Things to do in Saint-Jean-de-Fos
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.

    On the way to the cave Clamouse where in addition the shuttle made a stop. With the Lake below it's worth a detour.

    Accessible from St guilhem the desert by free shuttle or bus from Montpellier, the Devil's bridge is a perfect setting for a nice swim. Sand or Pebble /roche beach there is something for everyone. However, attention to the current which is not very fast but which may surprise during the ascent, sometimes one has the impression of hovering. In addition, signs are specified, prohibition of jumping from the high rocks, too dangerous. If everything is respected, the afternoon you will pass will be more than perfect. Take the opportunity to visit St guilhem the desert which is beautiful.

    Breathtaking view! And there's a really nice stream underneath where you can swim and do kayaking and all sort of water activities. A nice getaway place

    Great place to swim in the Herault river under a bridge built for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Take slippers because the beach has little rocks rather than sand.

    Clean water with a guard present. Maybe take a look at the hours and traffic because it might get crowded (wasn't my case). Fresh&clean!

    Beautiful place with a beautiful view, also ideal if you want to take a bath with your children or if you want to enjoy the sun.
