  • I walked past this bridge and discovered that it had a great and high statue that caused me to study it closer. Statue (on one side of the bridge) is of Saint Genevieve is the patron saint of Paris. In 1620 was the first bridge built here and there was a wooden bridge. In 1654 a stone bridge was erected here, but it was demolished in 1918 and replaced with the current in 1928, after it has the ravages of time and the flood, a severe on it.
