Pont Vieux


It was intended from the 1144 charter of the foundation of the city to build a strong bridge that could withstand floods of the Tarn. Eventually, this bridge, designed as a defensive system of the city, was built in the fourteenth century with the support of Philip the Fair. The bridge is the old bell tower and the nave of the church of Saint Jacques the only medieval remains of the city. Indeed, after the Catholic reconquest, the Church of St. Jacques was partly rebuilt in the seventeenth.
