"Sainte-Geneviève et Pont de la Tournelle" Pont de la Tournelle Tip by MM212
Pont de la Tournelle, Paris: 2 reviews and 8 photos
One of the newer bridges across the Seine, Pont de la Tournelle links Île Saint-Louis with the Left Bank. Although it was originally a wooden bridge in the middle ages, it was rebuilt twice thereafter: first in 1656 and again in 1928 after its predecessor was damaged in the flood of 1910. The most interesting feature of the bridge is the graceful statue of Sainte-Geneviève, the patron saint of Paris, sculpted by Paul Landowski, the sculptor responsible for the astonishing statue of Cristo Redentor towering over Rio de Janeiro.
