Officially known as the “Pont de Réginel”, for years this 19th-century drawbridge was referred to locally as “Pont de Langlois”, taking its name from the operator rose and lowered it daily. The bridge achieved eventual international fame—and its current moniker—when it was depicted by Van Gogh in four of his oil paintings in 1888. Although the bridge itself is fun to see, it isn’t much to write home about. But the 2.7-km (1 and 1/2-mile) walk along sleepy Canal d'Arles à Bouchere, trimmed by weeping willows and houseboats, more than makes up for it. The route is signposted from the center of town; alternatively the tourist office can direct you.
