As I wrote in a previous review, check this bridge out at night when you are walking along Place du Bourse. The whole scene of the bridge, Place du Bourse, the water mirror, the people, and Pnt de Pierre is an extremely pleasnt experience.

Wouldn't get to caught up in the history unlike the previous reviewer, unless your REALLY into bridges. This is nice, better than nice, but most things in Bordeaux are and to my mind you may as well stay on the city side because there isn't much happening over there.

a 15 minute walk from Ibis central hotel across this bridge takes you straight into the town. Bordeaux has superb architecture, although the streets are a little run down

Living in Paris with pretty much a bridge or passerelle every 100m I am astonished that the Pont de Pierre was until 1965 the only bridge traversing the Garonne in Bordeaux. It is very beautiful indeed with its 17 arches and street lights. It took 12 years from 1810 to 1822 to construct it. I recommend to cross over to... More

One of the nicest bridges in Bordeaux. It is lovely during the day and wonderful in the dark. It is worth having a long walk over it and the views are really amazing. This "Stone Bridge" was built in the early 1800s. Apparently the building of the bridge proved quite challenging to its architects and engineers due to the strong... More

Every bit as impressive as picture in guide books. A must see. Built by Napoleon. 17 arches! The ornate street lamps are worth the visit alone.

The light fixtures are what makes this bridge. They are a wonderful design and look good during the day as well as night time.

When we walked by this bridge during the day, we didn't think much of it. It's just another European bridge. Nothing special. When we were taking photos of Le Miroir d'eau at night, we also captured a nice shot of this bridge. You don't necessarily need a special camera. The railing by the river serves as a good stabilizer.
