My first effort in a new (to me) monthly photo challenge, Bridges Between, from Norway.
This was taken in Eze-Village, on the south coast of France, near Nice and Monaco. I went to see the bright yellow church, Notre Dame de l'Assomption, wandered round the back and found this lovely view.
The roads in this part of the world have an awful lot of bridges and tunnels but this bridge has a story.
The legend is that a peasant, fed up with having to walk for hours through the valley to cross to the other side, made a pact with the devil that it would be built overnight, in exchange for the soul of the first living being who crossed it.
The peasant couldn't sleep all night, worried about the sacrifice someone would make. The next morning he went to the road and found a wonderful new bridge and the devil waiting for his due. The peasant picked up a stick and threw it along the bridge. His dog chased after it and the devil was fooled.
The other version of the story is that it was built between 1911 and 1914.
