A crossing from the Gallic period
The Baume bridge crosses the Durance at the Baume cluse (close valley) and connects the rock of the citadel of Sisteron to the Baume mountain. It was rebuilt in 1945 on the site of an earlier bridge that, from Gallic times, allowed the Via Augusta from the Montgenèvre pass to the Strait of Gibraltar to cross the tumultuous river. Traces of the oldest bridge, replaced in 1365 by a more recent work restored in 1501 and whose arch was rebuilt in 1882, remain today.
