Jump to: navigation, search

The list of medieval bridges in France comprises all bridges built between 500 and 1500 AD in what is today France, that is including regions which were not part of the country in the Middle Ages, such as Burgundy, Alsace, Lorraine and Savoie. Along with those Roman bridges which remained in service throughout the period, there are in total over 700 structures known.
