Description

The Pont Neuf is considered to be the oldest stone bridge in Paris. Henri IV ordered it to be constructed in 1578. Twelve arches, 384 ‘mascarons’ or grotesque faces decorating the cornices and the equestrian statue of Henri IV, the first to be placed on a public thoroughfare, make the bridge instantly recognizable. Consisting of two spans, the bridge connects the Musée du Louvre, Rue de Rivoli and the Tour Saint-Jacques on the Right Bank with the Rue Dauphine, the Monnaie de Paris and Saint-Germain-des-Prés on the Left Bank via the Ile de la Cité, the starting point for a tour of Notre Dame Cathedral and the Sainte-Chapelle.
