Definitely something to see as you wander round the old town. Very interesting history. Good views of the town and river from the bridge itself.

A lovely walk across one of several bridges over the Tarn river. We also enjoyed a boat trip under the bridge. Look over nets the columns to see the giant catfish in the shallows waiting to catch an unsuspecting seagull or 2!!

A medieval brige over the Tarn river, only a fex minutes from the celebrated cathedral and quite a spectacle from it over the falls and an old mill. Birds galore flying over the foaming waters
