PONT DE PIERRE - STONE BRIDGE

Charming Bordeaux - - THE DISTRICTS OF BORDEAUX SAINT-PIERRE, SAINT-PAUL -

The city’s old­est bridge, built in 1822 from blond stone and red brick, it spans al­most 500 me­tres with its 17 ma­jes­tic arches; as many arches, it is said, as there are let­ters in the name of Napoléon Bon­a­parte, who com­mis­sioned it.
