Basse-Normandie Off The Beaten Path: 16 reviews and 23 photos
Not able to place this magnificent modern piece of architecture, here is some information about the enormous bridge: Pont de Normandie. With a span of more then two kilometers the bridge hangs high above the mouth of the river Seine. The towers rise almost 215 meters up from the waterlevel and in between them hangs 856 meters of road. With these numbers the Pont-de-Normandie was for a while the longest cable bridge in the world. It connected Le Havre with Honfleur over the river Seine and is a key link in the "Autoroute de Normandie" (A29) leading Westwards from Paris. Before the bridge, a car had to drive almost 100 km more to cross the river Seine or use the ferry.
