  • Built in the year 1828, it connects the 4th and 5th counties. This is a fairly ordinary bridge, without any decorations or sculptures. We went after visiting the Cathedral. Nice view of the cathedral and the park behind.

  • Here Many write that the bridge is ordinary, without zest, etc. But in my opinion, if to understand, it is obtained some of the best photos, as a favorite, and generally views of Notre-Dame. If You stand up to the parapet of the bridge, there is no one behind you in the photo. Only You and the Great Cathedral. I Assure You that the photo from the façade of the Cathedral will be more chaotic and there is always a lot of people. of Course the taste and color as says, but.... Try and feel the difference! Recommend.
