Pont Neuf, Toulouse

The Pont Neuf, French for "New Bridge" (a.k.a. Pont de Pierre and Grand Pont), is a 16th-century bridge in Toulouse, in the South of France.ConstructionOriginal planning for the bridge started in 1542 by the assembly of a committee of master masons and carpenters. Construction started on the foundations in 1544; the first arch was started in 1614. The bridge was finished in 1632, and was inaugurated on 19 October 1659.The bridge is not symmetrical; the longest arch is the third from the right-hand bank. The openings through the piers were originally supposed to represent the face and mane of a lion. A triumphal archway added in 1686 constricted traffic and was removed in 1860.It is 220m long, and has 7 arches.

  • Can't come to Toulouse without going from the Capitol to the new bridge. All the charm of the city is concentrated in this small walk

  • It's a bridge. If you're a photographer you can get some very nice shots at night, though. The water is very still, and has a nice reflection of the bridge and its surroundings.
  • Awesome view at night with the reflection of lights in the water
  • The best spot to be by evening for the sunset. And ofcourse on the weekend for cheerful night.
  • Loved the little child with the bonnet
  • Beautiful, historical and stunning view of region
