The Pont Pierre consists of many uniform arches across the mighty Garonne River and its bricks & masonry have been restored to perfection, complementing the stone buildings on the city centre (west bank) side.The great old bridge is enhanced by its black railings between the piers and what appear to be retro Belle Epoque style street lamps also painted black...

This Bridge is impressive: the first thing you think about it is that it's impressive due to its solid and big structure. Once you realize how much big is the Garonne, you'll see it like a "normal" bridge. pont de Pierre is beautifull at any time during the day, night included thanks to the lighs it has. It's simply great,... More

We walked by the bridge a couple of times during our one night stay in Bordeaux. There are few bridges in the world worth seeing and this one falls under the "If you have seen one bridge in your life...you have seen them all" category. P.S. The murky water doesn't help matters...

People who claim this is "just another bridge" are perhaps missing the point. It's huge! It puts in perspective just how wide the river is. Very beautiful stone bridge.

As bridges go it is quite nice with its 17 arches to represent the laters in Napoleon Bonepart's name. But its not Charle's Bridge in Prague or even Tower Bridge.

crossing over the bridge can take you to the other side of Bordeaux. if you don't want to visit the other side, then walk till the middle of the bridge! it is still memorable to appreciate the Garonne river.

Commissioned by Napoleon. Typical stone bridge with arches illuminated at night in an attractive way offering great views over the city and connecting rives gauche et droite.

For something a little different, take a walk across the Bridge to Les Bastides neighbourhood of Bordeaux. Great location to take pictures of the left bank of Bordeaux. Venture further into the Jardin Botanique for some quiet time. If you feel energetic enough, a path will take you all the way to Pont Jaques and all the way back into... More

While this bridge is romantic and charming from the banks of the river it is an active bridge for transport. In comparison to the Charles Bridge in Prague this bridge which is very similar, could be so much more. Since it is in the center of the tourist areas you will most likely pass it more than once.
