Pont du Carrousel is a nice bridge, built in the 19th century, with some history behind it. It joins two sides of the Seine, leading to Place du Carrousel, right outside the Louvre Museum. It is not a very ornate bridge but there are some interesting features at either end of it. Worth a walk.

Spanning the Seine this stone bridge is quite plain, however with its ornate statues and adornments, make it regal in our thinking, with the bridge in line with the Louvre entrance just adds to the beauty of the area.

A relatively newer bridge, that is, for Parisian standards, about 190 years old, formerly referred to as "pont des Saints-Pères", after a Left Bank street to which the bridge opens, just got a modern art installation. Located on the right side of the bridge when facing Louvre, on the Left Bank side, there is a sculptural group by the French artist Bruno Catalano, known all over the world by his eye-catching partially hollow sculptures. The triptych is named "Pierre David" and consists of two persons and a traveller's bag, all three placed on their respective pedestals. As the rest of his works, the triptych is inspired by recurring themes of travel, road, and movement, symbolizing the human life at its different stages. We are not sure how long the installation is supposed to remain in place. Galerie Bartoux, which exhibits Catalano's sculptures, originally announced the dates as November 18, 2019 to December 27, 2019, however, at the time of our visit, the first week of January 2020, the installation was still in place.

Crossing the Pont du Carrousel bridge takes you directly in front of the glass pyramid, which is the main entrance to the Louvre museum. Excellent views as you're crossing it, specially the three arched passage through Louvre massive facade.

Nice looking not too old bridge, adjacent to the main entrance to Louvre. Nice views from it and to it.
