Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
The Pont Flavien (English: Flavian Bridge) is a Roman bridge across the River Touloubre in Saint-Chamas, Bouches-du-Rhône department, southern France. The single-arch crossing, which was built from limestone, was on a Roman road - the Via Julia Augusta - between Placentia, Italy and Arles. It is the only surviving example of a Roman bridge bounded by triumphal arches from the Augustan period, although similar bridges probably existed elsewhere, as indicated by portrayals on coins of the late 1st century BC.

  • Beautiful 2000 year old roman bridge still standing. A bit lost in the field but very impressive part of a roman Highway. Free to visit. Look how the road has been won out by the tracks of carriages.  more »

  • Historical monument of Roman times. It ends there, no more, no less to see. In any case, the site is not distorted by any buildings managing its paid access 😏 it is so rare nowadays ...

  • Nice place full of history. This 2000-year-old bridge is a beautiful trace of the Gallo-Roman era. Unfortunately it is located right at the entrance to the city and therefore far from the center. He is lonely and little put forward. There is no information to explain the monument. You either have to stop when you arrive or travel the 2 km that separates it from the center.
