Drive, take the tram or simply walk over this picture-perfect, multiple-arched, brick-built bridge. We walked halfway as there wasn’t much to do on the opposite bank. Nice place to take a sunset photo or, as we were lucky enough to time it, listen to a local amateur brass band practice one Tuesday evening on the south-west bank.

We took the tram and started our walk from the Place de Bourse, it was hot but still worth the photographic opportunities one get from the bridge. The lamps that line the bridge are beautiful and give character to it. At the end of the bridge, you come to the Blue Lion a modern monument, with many facets, that shapes... More

Beautiful bridge across the largest river in Bordeaux separating the Left and Right Bank. Reminds us of the Charles Bridge in Prague. Peaceful and pretty. You won't be disappointed...

It was a pretty site at night when the bridge was illuminated, and just a short walk across to the other side of the Garonne.

Napoleon apparently ordered the building of Pont de Pierre/Stone Bridge when he was caught on the wrong side of the Garonne River, coming from or going to the Peninsular Campaign, and it took three days to ferry his army to the other side. Due to technical difficulties, it was not built until about 1820, after his exile and death. This... More

A beautiful bridge which reminded me of Margaret bridge in Budapest - I know Margaret bridge isn't all of stone but in style. Anyhow, a nice bridge worth of photo.

The Pont de Pierre is hard to miss as you stroll the Bordeaux riverfront. But try taking a boat ride up the river and you get a view of the bridge that would have confronted travellers 200 years ago! It is a massive bridge and must have been a challenge to construct in a tidal river. The fact that it... More

Pont de Pierre is a stunning 19th century stone bridge which crosses the Garonne River from the city's historic centre on the left bank to the La Bastide district on the right bank. Now-a-days the bridge transports cars, the Line A tram and pedestrians can cross the bridge but that has not always been the case. Over time the bridge... More
