  • I liked the Queen's course because this is where the statue of Albert Premier is located and in front of him is the statue of Simon Bolivar. Even if the base is a bit high, it's very nice to see. On the other hand, the horse is not moving as well as the character and it's a shame.

  • It is an equestrian statue of Albert I (1875-1934), King of the Belgians, situated on the right bank of the Seine and next to the Ponte de la Concorde. It was inaugurated in 1938 and is made in bronze, with excellent finishes. It seeks to honor this Belgian monarch.

  • 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.
