Pont du Diable, Saint-Jean-de-Fos

4.4
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.

  • We had the chance to go there at a time where parking was free but the shuttle to reach the village of St Guilhem the desert did not work either. A promenade shaded to join the banks and go up on deck after having left the car. Banks has a beach for those who want to linger. I think that it is preferable to park his car in the Devil's bridge and climb to Saint Guilhem with the car when we can otherwise this village is unaffordable so much parking is expensive and the fact that there is no possibility to modulate the parking time.

  • A magnificent bridge, including you. It is a quiet place, not really touristy. There are some parking spaces on one side of the bridge.

  • In my opinion, a tourist trap with parking paying over a 1/2 hour. This Devil's bridge has a story and a beautiful appearance.

  • 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!
  • Great place to swim and kayak on a warm day
  • 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.
