  • About Henry Navrsky, the founder of the Royal Bourbon dynasty, knows everyone who studied history in school... You can Take a look at the king by strolling through the Pont Neuf Bridge. It Is on this bridge that Henry IV garcates on his horse since 1614, with a break, for known reasons, in 1792-1814 years. The Equestrian statue of Henry IV, created on the dictates of Queen Marie De Medici, is the first monument to the French king, installed in a public 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.
