  • The Statue of Albert equestrian 1st, King of the Belgians, is located at the beginning of the course of the Queen. It's a beautiful monumental statue.

  • In the 8th district, on the "course of the Queen", on the side of place de la Concorde, you will discover this monument with the equestrian statue of 1 Albert, Prince of Belgium, Duke of Saxony and King of the Belgians in 1909, who died in 1934. Initially, this work should take place next to the Grand Palais and the Pont Alexandre III or about the avenue Henri Martin in the 16th arrondissement. Finally, in 1938, it will be inaugurated at its current location. This monument is of the architect Henri Gaudruche and sculpture in bronze at the Armand Martial artist. A beautiful representation. You can come by metro, lines 1, 8, 12, station "Concorde".

  • Quiet definitely. Boat cruise start there. A willow tree at the point is a sacred spot for lovers.
  • One of the interesting things to see at the Western end of Ile de la Cite is the Equestrian Station of Henry IV, King of France between 1589 and 1610. It is a nice statue of an Eastward facing Henry on horseback, located above the small Square du Vert-Galant on Pont Neuf. The bronze statue you see today was built in 1818 by Francois-Frederic Lemot to replace an original statue built in 1614 by order of widowed Queen Marie de' Medici. The original King Henry IV statue was destroyed in 1792 during the French Revolution. Overall, the Equestrian Statue is a nice addition to the collection of attractions and things to see and do at Ile de la Cite. Its nice to stop by for a look after visiting Saint Chapelle, just a few minutes walk away.
