Create an itinerary including Pont du Diable
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.

  • Honestly the best place to go in summer. When you need a break from all the salt water come to this place it's amazing
  • Great location with a beautiful old bridge and a nice lake for swimming and canoeing. From the lake you can swim or canoe under the bridge onto the river which cuts trough the mountains. Some free diving sections are there as well.
