Roman bridge 1st century, where Via Domitia crosses Herault river.

_The bridge was built by the Romans to allow the Via Domitia, to cross the Herault river. With its 9 arches, it was the longest bridge of Via Domitia.

_Damaged by the risings of 1536 and 1678, the bridge was repaired on order of the States of Languedoc to allow the merchants and pélerins to take this way.

_Today, it only remains 4 arches out of the 9 than it had in the beginning. They were destroyed at the XIXe century following important floods.

_The Domitienne way is a Roman way built starting from 118 av. J.-C., of the name of the Roman general, Cneus Domitius Ahenobarbus, which is in the beginning.
It connected Rome to Spain while crossing Gaule Narbonnese. Paved or simple dirt track on layers of gravel and stones, it was marked all the miles, 1481 m, by a milliary landmark.

The ancient name of the village was Cessero. The village was then called Saint-Thibéry.
The village is located at the confluence of Herault river and Thongue river, and is close to an old volcano, the Ramus Mount.
