Born after the construction of military bastions, the commune of Pont-de-l'Arche is located at the confluence of the Eure and the Seine. It was equipped with a fortified bridge from the foundation of Normandy by the Vikings, around 862, and protected by two forts. The city, a mixture of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, offers a beautiful group of old houses, mostly dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, and remains of its ancient fortifications (including those built by Charles II, known as the Bald One) are still visible. A pleasant and lively little town with many events throughout the year and its traditional market. From the banks of the Seine, there is a superb view of the church and the old town. Also don't miss the nearby Cistercian Abbey in Bonport.
