Originally built between 1171 and 1185, the Pont Saint Bénezet initially spanned the Rhône River between Avignon and Villeneuve-lès-Avignon with an original length of some 900m, but suffered numerous collapses during floods. It was reconstructed several times before being damaged beyond repair in 1668. Since then, its surviving arches have collapsed or been destroyed, and only four of the original 22 arches remain and it therefore now ends abruptly in the middle of the Rhone.
The bridge is ranked among UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
