Seventeen arches and only one for the airplanes!

Yes its true. 17 arches ... just as many letters as in the Emperor's name. Vuilt as part of a Napoleonic attack plan on Spain but finished too late to be strategically useful. But... read more

Yes its true. 17 arches ... just as many letters as in the Emperor's name. Vuilt as part of a Napoleonic attack plan on Spain but finished too late to be strategically useful. But a nice bridge. At low tide aiplane parts pass under one central arch (only). Look for the red light over the centre arch. That's the give-away.

It is very nice at night with the lights. Don't go at noon because it'll be hot like an oven. You can bike through in the evenings. It is nice place to take a walk. You can do picnic nearby

The Pont de Pierre (or 'Stone Bridge') is a historic bridge that spans the River Garonne. With its many arches, as well as iron lampposts, it is an impressive bridge. A quick photo stop.

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
