The water below the bridge in this photo belongs to the Rhne River, which flows a few 500 miles thru Europe on its way to the Mediterranean. Here in Avignon, France, the Rhne flows under the remains of a medieval bridge called Pont Saint-Bnzet, named for a young shepherd boy. Legend says that sometime around 1177 Bnzet had a imaginative and prescient from God educating him to build the bridge. He miraculously lifted a block of heavy stone, which stimulated the town to assist, and Bnzet went directly to found a brotherhood of bridge builders.
