It was built in 1828, by the engineer Plouard, for the society Pont des Invalides after the demolition of the suspension bridge at Les Invalides.The bridge is 68m long. It is composed of three arches of stone measuring heights of 15m, 17m, and 15m. The bridge commonly seen in the background of the set on Highlander when the show was set in Paris. After the Pont des Arts was cleared of its display of padlocks in 2010, and similarly the Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor, lovers started to place their 'love padlocks' on this bridge. The original two bridges for this were footbridges, but this one, a bit narrower, is a road bridge.Characteristics Type of construction : Arch bridge Construction : 1828 Architect : Plouard Material : stone Total Length : 68m Width : 17m Usable width : 11m

  • Church would end up in front of the tourist areas of the Notre-Dame church, personally, saw from the back is cool well I like. This bridge is a photographer from good to see both the Church and the river Seine.

  • Appearance is ordinary steel bridge. Around a lot of stone to it 珍shikattari. And when it comes across, and hanging a padlock of the myriad. No, that hangs. Feel the lovers love to pray. On the trip, become very sentimental.

  • The view of Notre Dame from the Pont de L'archeveche is different... because perhaps we are always used to see her face; but the sides and the back are also worth. In addition, this bridge is filled with padlocks... all those lovers who have sealed your love in Paris and on the banks of the Seine. From there you can see, by way of witness memories, the hundred - thousands - of padlocks with messages that couples have left there as a symbol of their union. The truth is it is impressing to see the bridge with all these padlocks... If you do it over, looking at Notre Dame... view and the picture is much more spectacular and symbolic.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
