Pont de Pierre, Bordeaux
(4.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
The first bridge over the Garonne River at Bordeaux, Pont de Pierre was planned and designed under the orders of Napoléon Bonaparte, though its construction took place during the Bourbon Restoration between 1819 and 1822. Notice that the bridge stands on 17 arches (coincidently the same number of letters in the name Napoléon Bonaparte). White medallions cap each side in honor of the emperor, alongside the city's coat of arms (three intertwined crescents). This was the only bridge in the area until the construction of Pont Saint-Jean in 1965. Put Pont de Pierre on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Bordeaux holiday planner.
