FRANCAIS : LE PONT SAINT-BENEZET est l'ouvrage le plus ancien construit sur le Rhône entre Lyon et la mer au XIIe siècle. Un premier pont de l'époque romane fonctionne dés 1184. Détruit vers 1226, il sera bâti sur ses restes le pont actuel avec un principe d’arches accolées (voir sous le pont) dans l’esprit du fameux Pont du Gard.
Ce nouveau pont s'étirera sur environ 900 mètres et comptera quelques 22 arches jusqu’au pied de la Tour philippe le Bel (visible au loin sur la rive de Villeneuve lès Avignon). .
Louis XIV est l'un des derniers à avoir franchi le Rhône avant son "effondrement" au XVIIe siècle. .
Quand à la célèbre comptine « Sur le Pont d’Avignon … » elle apparaîtra ainsi finalisée, dans des opérettes au XIXème siècle .
Les Avignonnais, n’ont jamais dansé sur le pont, à cause de son étroitesse. Mais les berges du Rhône ont toujours accueilli leurs rencontres et réjouissances (guinguettes, piques-niques, joutes, bateau-piscine et bateau-lavoir). Aussi à cette époque on ne dansait pas sur le pont, mais … sous celui-ci !

IMPORTANT : TOUTES LES BOITES SONT UTILES - NE PAS LES PERDRE - MERCI - PAS DE PHOTOS DE LA CACHE ELLE-MËME !

ENGLISH : THE PONT SAINT-BENEZET is the oldest structure built on the Rhône River between Lyon and the sea in the twelfth century. A first bridge (from Romanesque period) operates from 1184. Ruined toward 1226, it will be built, on its remains the existing bridge with a principle of side by side arches (see below the bridge) in the spirit of the famous Pont du Gard.
The new bridge will stretch for about 900 meters and will include some 22 arches on to the foot of the Tour Philippe le Bel (visible on the distance, on the bank of Villeneuve lès Avignon).
Louis XIV is one of the last to have crossed the Rhône before its "collapse" in the seventeenth century .
And about the famous rhyme "Sur le Pont d'Avignon ..." it appears as finalized, in the nineteenth century operettas .
The people from Avignon, never danced on the bridge because of its narrowness. But the banks of the Rhône have always welcomed their meetings and celebrations (dance halls, picnics, nautical jousts, swimming-boat and washing-boat). Also at this time we do not dance on the bridge, but ... under it! .

IMPORTANT : ALL OF THE BOXES ARE USEFUL - PLEASE DO NOT LOOSE THEM - THANKS - PLEASE NO PICTURES OF THE CACHE ITSELF.
