Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • We walked to the Pont Neuf from our hotel on Place du Capitole (easy access to all of Toulouse). We sat at Bistro Flo at its edge in the Beaux Arts. Nice way to absorb the feeling of this city.  more »
