Bridge
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.

  • This bridge in the 16th century has withstood many floods of the Garonne. Its degueuloirs and ridges wisely built helped Toulouse to hold the older bridge. A must see!

  • Well worth the walk over the bridge and you get a great view of Le Garonne. In the middle of the bridge there is a mappointing out all the sights from where you are.  more »
  • This bridge is really unusual and very representative of Toulouse. I stroll in the meadow of the filters (very pleasant walk in the spring) to arrive at the foot of the bridge that I went through to get to the historic center. At night it lights up a light pink, mafic
