Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Wonderful and impressive site. Place where you can walk and afmire the scenery of the cevennes nature and swim in the lac.
  • Beautiful lake and great view from the bridge
