The Pont Valentré (Occitan: Pont de Balandras; English: Valentré Bridge) is a 14th-century six-span fortified stone arch bridge crossing the Lot River to the west of Cahors, in France. It has become a symbol of the city.

After the decision was made to build it on 30 April 1306, construction began on 17 June 1308.It was built between 1308 and 1378 with six Gothic arches and three square bridge towers. It opened for use in 1350.

In local folklore it is said that the foreman, exasperated by the slow pace of the work, signed a pact with the Devil. In the pact the Devil promised to use his skills to expedite the work and, if he carried out all of the foreman's orders, then his (the foreman's) soul would be forfeit.Having seen the bridge built on time, the foreman regrets his decision and issues a final order to the devil to go and collect water for the other workers using a sieve. In revenge for having been tricked, the Devil sends a demon each night to loosen the final stone in the central tower (known as the Devil's Tower) to ensure that the bridge is never finished and must be repaired each day.
During the restoration of the bridge in 1879, the architect Paul Gout inserted a stone bearing the sculpted image of an imp into the central tower. As a result, according to the updated legend, every time the Devil checks to see that his vandalism has been carried out, he is confused into thinking that the stone image is one of his demons tasked with dismantling the bridge.

The bridge was classified in 1998 as a world heritage site. It is only open to pedestrians.

The bridge has been recreatead manually from various photos and videos found on the internet. It comes with its own lights and POI.

    Un grand merci pour le pont bien apprécié, et attendu par quelqu'un qui vole depuis LFCC ! Bon, le pont de chemin de fer a côté mériterait bien quelques retouches!
    Quelqu'un saurait-il comment éviter que les rivières prennent des virages façon autodrome? Merci aussi pour vos autres mods, bon boulot!

    La zone de Cahors est très mal rendue dans le jeu et mérite un peu plus d'attention. Je verrai si je peux rajouter le pont de chemin de fer à côté.

    Pour la boucle du Lot, je l'ai déjà bien applanie avec ce mod et ça rend déjà un peu mieux. J'utilise un polygone avec terraforming spread 10 et ça marche... du moins tant qu'on reste de près. Dès qu'on s'éloigne un peu, le rendu bugge et affiche des scène dignes de Dali. J'ai fait un mod censé corriger cet effet "piste de bobsleigh" pour la vallée de la Dordogne mais de loin, le resultat est catastrophique.
    Un autre moddeur me disait que le problème datait d'une maj de fin 2020.
    On verra s'ils corrigent ça.
