Roman Bridge, St-Thibéry

Roman Bridge and XIIIc mill
The Roman Bridge at St-Thibéry actually dates from the Middle Ages. It replaced a truly Roman bridge which carried the Via Domitia over the River Hérault at this point. Only four of the original nine arches remain. The others were destroyed in the XIXc by severe floods. The flour mill dates from the XIIIc. It was the property of a Benedictine abbey.
