Pont Neuf, Paris: 31 reviews and 57 photos
At the Westside of the Ile de la Cite (Island of the City) the oldest bridge of Paris is located: the Pont Neuf. This bridge was built between 1578 and 1604, so the whole of the bridge is over 400 years old!
The bridge connects both banks of the Seine river with eachother and with the Ile de la Cite, which made its appearance very important, especially in those days.
The Pont Neuf consists of 12 arches in two pieces: one part at the southside of the island and one part at the northside. The bridge has a total length of 238 metres, a width of 20 metres and was designed by five different architects.
The last years they are busy restauring the bridge, which is a huge effort. It already took three years to clean the southern part, now they are working on the northern part of the bridge.
