Pont Neuf, Toulouse

(4.3/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful architectural work. Old stone bridge, which, for the story, has replaced a covered bridge which was directly in the former Hospital (which can be seen the remains at the top of the stairs by entering in the administration building of the hospital).
