  • This was the metting point for two of our tours on the tip of Pont Neuf. Lovely statue of Henry 1V, with so much History on this small Island il de le cite the main attractions of Paris in my eyes. Ju...  more »
  • Our ancestors left treasures of memories, including books, surrounded by lead, for future generations inside the belly of the animal. This statue is the work of the sculptor François Frédéric Lemot and it was inaugurated on August 25, 1818. To move this statue from the foundry of the Roule to the site, the horses run out and even the oxen, so it is the people of Paris who set out on the wagon and pull it to the intended place.

  • 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.
