The Pont Julien (French for Julian Bridge) is a Roman stone arch bridge over the Calavon river, in the south-east of France, dating from 3 BC. The supporting columns are notable for openings to allow floodwater to pass through.See Pont Julien and all Bonnieux has to offer by arranging your trip with our Bonnieux travel planner.
It is located in the territory of the commune of Bonnieux, north of the village of the same name, and
8 km west of Apt. Originally, it was built on the Via Domitia, an important Roman road which connected Italy to the Roman territories in France. It was used for car traffic until 2005, when a replacement bridge was built to preserve it from wear and tear. It is still used as bike- and footpath. This amounts to approximately 2000 years of uninterrupted use.

Very nice bridge with lots of character. The limited info on site gives no dates but notes that the original Roman wooden bridge was probably washed away and rebuilt in stone to be what we see today..... more

Great stop if you’re in the area. This bridge has been in use over 2,000 years so that’s a good reason to visit. The river is dried up but still amazing to check out.
Nice Roman bridge that used te be part of the connection between Spain 🇪🇸 and Italy 🇮🇹. In dry season there is no water in the riverbed. There is a parking near the bridge. From there you can travel by bike to - for example - Apt: Le voile vert.
