  • It is a bridge used and towards the park behind Notre Dame Cathedral on the left bank. It once was the Archbishop's great Hall here, in the sense that the "Archbishop's Palace" is the name of the bridge. There is a great bridge from Notre Dame Cathedral. It is a place can look at the full picture of the sleek appearance of the flying buttresses supporting the nave.

  • This bridge allows to contemplate or photographing our Lady on the side of the bed. A splendid view. It gives access to the junction between the île de la Cité and Ile Saint-Louis.
