Julien Bridge


BONNIEUX
 

The 'Pont Julien' or Julien Bridge was built by Domitius Ahenobarbus during the High Empire, between 27 BC and 14 AD. The bridge is a stonework or opus quadratum bridge.

There were many important engineering works on the Via Domitia, a main road during Roman times. Every river had its bridge. It has been well maintained and preserved over time, and is an example of a major engineering element on the Provence section of the Via Domitia (5 km from Bonnieux).

Walkers and bikers can cross the river on the bridge, just like the Romans did 2,000 years ago.
