Photographer's Note

The bridge links the village of Saint-Germain-de-Confolens in the foreground to the hamlet of Sainte-Radegonde in the background. Sainte-Radegonde is, in fact, a district of Saint-Germain. The bridge constructed of stone on a series of arches originally dated from the 14th century. When it was widened in the 19th century it is said to have lost much of its charm and original appearance.

Saint-Germain-de-Confolens is a French commune in the Charente département located at the confluence of the Vienne and Issoire rivers, which meet just outside the village of the same name. With a population of around 100, its inhabitants are known as Saint-Germanotis.

The French Wikipedea site has an article about the geography and history of the area here. The above information was extracted and freely translated from that article.
