Photo: Sospel Bridge France

The stone bridge spans the Bevera river in the town of Sospel in Provence, France in Europe.

The town of Sospel in the Alpes-Maritimes region of Provence in France is split in half by the Bevera river and united by the stone bridge. The Sospel bridge was built in the 12th century and used as a toll booth. Although it was damaged in World War ll the original materials were used to reconstruct it.This historic bridge of Sospel in Provence, France is part of the main road through the town. The fortified bridge has a guard house in the centre and in recent years, until 2004, it was home to the Tourist Office. The double arches of the bridge make it an attractive necessity for the town of Sospel.Because of the river dividing Sospel in France there is an old town on both sides with narrow, dark, medieval streets. Although Sospel is a town, maybe it should be considered a city, because in 1370 the people sided with the Pope of Avignon over the Anti-Pope in Rome and St. Michel's church became a cathedral. ... continue below the picture...
