Pont Neuf, Toulouse

4.4
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.

  • Very interesting site visit, because although the bridge be almost a thousand years of existence, is in perfect state of conservation. Worth every minute on the site to enjoy the energy of the waters of the river and the beautiful visual of the arches of the bridge.
