Make a wish

Fairies bridge

Behind its delightful name hides an ancient aqueduct which supplied the village of Grimaud with water during the 16th and 17th centuries via the fountain on Place Neuve.

With a few waves of a magic wand, the bridge was built over the La Garde river.

Its unique construction and exceptional location earned it the classification of ‘noteworthy site’ (‘site remarquable’ in France) as early as 1927.
