Pont de Pierre, Bordeaux

4.5
Bridge · Landmark
The first bridge over the Garonne River at Bordeaux, Pont de Pierre was planned and designed under the orders of Napoléon Bonaparte, though its construction took place during the Bourbon Restoration between 1819 and 1822. Notice that the bridge stands on 17 arches (coincidently the same number of letters in the name Napoléon Bonaparte). White medallions cap each side in honor of the emperor, alongside the city's coat of arms (three intertwined crescents). This was the only bridge in the area until the construction of Pont Saint-Jean in 1965.

  • This was another mandatory stop during our visit to Bordeaux. We walked it back and forth a couple of times just to look and take pictures around. Great photo opportunities and a good walking location. It was closed for vehicles during my visit but bikes and pedestrians were allowed to go through.
  • Good view; always a breeze on the bridge.
