The famous medieval bridge known as Pont St Benezet is situated in the town of Avignon on the Rhone River in France, Europe. The Pont St Benezet was originally built between 1171 and 1185 and extended across the Rhone River but collapsed several times due to extreme floods.Eventually the bridge was put out of service for good because of a major flood and only four of the arches are left to survive to this day. The Chapelle St Nicolas on the Avignon side also remains standing on one of the bridge's surviving piers.The Pont St Benezet which spanned the Rhone River was of great importance in the town of Avignon and carries a massive amount of history behind it.
