2/25/2006--Avignon, France..The bridge of Saint-Benezet, also called the Pont d?Avignon, at rue Ferruce. Built in the late 1100s, most of the bridge was destroyed by the raging flood waters of the Rhone river, leaving it with four remaining arches out of its original twenty-two. Legend has it that the lyrics, claiming the people danced on (sur) the bridge, were altered over time, and that they actually danced under (sous) the bridge. Entrance costs 3.5 euros and comes with a free audio guide (available in English)..Photograph By Stuart Isett.All photographs ©2005 Stuart Isett.All rights reserved.
