The bridge was supposedly built in year 19 AD by Emperor Tiberius and is one of the best preserved bridges in the former Roman Empire.
The bridge originally had 23 arches, discovered recently by using 3D laser technology and had houses on both sides of the bridge, like Ponte Vecchio and the Rialto Bridge.
You can still see some of the arches under the houses around the Market Square.
I am lucky enough to live in Sommieres, so I see the bridge often and it is beautiful every time:)
