About this spot
The spot is located on the Pont Neuf and you can take photos on each side of the bridge. Upstream, towards the Conciergerie and the Pont au Change and downstream towards the Pont des Arts.
The Pont Neuf is certainly one of my favorites in Paris. Probably because it is the oldest and therefore has a long history.
It crosses the Seine at the western tip of the Ile de la Cité.
Built at the end of the 16th century and finished at the start of the 17th century, it owes its name to the novelty that constituted at the time a bridge devoid of dwellings and provided with sidewalks protecting pedestrians from mud and horses. It is also the very first stone bridge in Paris to cross the Seine entirely.
This monument has been classified as a historic monument since 1889. In 1991, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, along with all the quays of the Seine in Paris.
