Landmark
The pont Mirabeau in Paris was built between 1895 and 1897. It was listed a historical monument in 1975.GeographyThe bridge spans the Seine from the 15th arrondissement (left bank), to the 16th arrondissement. It links rue de la Convention and place Mirabeau, on the left bank, to rue de Rémusat. On the left side, upstream, is the gare de Javel of the RER, line C. The bridge is served by the Paris Metro stations Mirabeau and Javel - André Citroën.HistoryThe decision to create a new bridge to the right of the junction created by avenue de Versailles and rue Mirabeau was taken by the French President Sadi Carnot on 12 January 1893. The bridge was designed by the engineer Paul Rabel, responsible for the bridges of Paris, assisted by the engineers Jean Résal and Amédée d'Alby, and built by Daydé & Pillé.ArchitectureThe principal arch has a span of 93 meters, and the two lateral arches 32,4 m. The one on the right bank spans the road, while the one of the left bank spans the quay and extends the link over the RER railway. At the time of its construction, this was the longest and highest bridge in Paris. The bridge is 173 meters long, 20 m. wide (the roadway measures 12 m., and the two pavements 4 m. each).

  • Built from 1893 to 1896, he was ranked in Historical Monuments in 1975. You can see four large monumental sculptures on its two sides. This bridge is a must-see. Come by metro, station "Javel - André Citroën" or "Mirabeau or by RER station"Bleach"."

  • Nice bridge for the view, and also for what it represents, it is one of the best-known bridges in Paris on the 37 and he entered the legend thanks to the poem of Apollinaire and the song by Marc Lavoine.
