Pont de l'Archeveche Reviews
Ponte de pedra que liga a Île de la Cité ao 5o arrondissement, bem perto da parte de trás da catedral de Notre Dame. more »Stone Bridge linking the Île de la Cité to the 5th arrondissement, very close to the back of Notre Dame Cathedral.
After such a great fire, it is fantastic just to see so much still standing. Great view from the banks of the Seine. Hope I will still be alive to see the roof completed and go inside. more »
