The Pont de Pierre is a beautiful stone bridge which was completed in 1822 after being commissioned by Napoleon. The bridge is quite amazing and was the first bridge built across the Garonne.
It is said that the bridge could only be compared to those magnificient bridges in Paris, and I quite agree. During dusk you can appreciate the bridge in all its glory as my picture illustrates.
The 'Pont de Pierre' was commissioned by Napoleon. It was finished in 1822. This "Stone Bridge" is almost 500 meter long. It used to be a toll bridge, but in 1861 the town bought it and since then it has been free. This is definitely one of the most beautiful bridges in France, its beauty is only comparable to the ones in Paris.
And I love to come here at nite cos of the beauty from the lights and its amazed....
There are nice views of the city and the river from the Pont de Pierre, a short distance from the city centre. This bridge, commissioned by Napolean and completed in 1822, is a well known symbol of Bordeaux and is one of the most beautiful structures in the city.
First bridge across the Garonne, it was built between 1810 and 1822 on behalf of Napoléon Premier.
For 12 years the builders had to cope with strong currents, and only with an english equipment could the stabilize the piles. It has 17 piles (note this is the same count as the letters in "Napoléon Bonaparte") with a white medallion.
The bridge was the only one until 1965, and was been recently reinforced for the tramway and the Airbus barges.
This is the oldest bridge in Bordeaux and connects Bordeaux with Bordeau Bastide. It was build in the early 19th century on the order of Napoleon. In daylight i was not very impressed but i liked the bridge a lot when it was lit up for the night.
Like in Paris Seine, Pont de Pierre is a very Old bridge that connects Bordeaux to La Bastide. It is very attractive especially at night.
Le Pont de Pierre: There was originally a wood bridge which was wanted by Napoleon. It's with the Restauration that the 'pont de pierre' (stone bridge) was built in 1821.
