Pont de l'Archeveche Reviews
Ponte bem estreita sobre o Rio Sena que propiciou um ângulo alternativo de visão para a Catedral de Notre Dame. more »Very narrow bridge over the River Seine which provided an alternative angle of view to the Notre Dame Cathedral.
This is a lovely bridge, that we walked across to appreciate the back side of the now burnt down Notre Dame cathedral. more »
