This arched stone bridge is the third oldest one in Paris. It's name refers to Louis XIV who financed its construction. The name also reflects its proximity to Louvre palace.
Today it's a fastest link for art lovers visiting both, Louvre and Orsay museums.
Nice views of both of them from the middle.

It is the third oldest bridge in Paris, after the Pont Neuf and the Pont Marie on the Isle of Saint-Louis. It was built already under Louis XIV in 1689. The main passions were boiling during the revolution when General Bonaparte installed cannons here to protect the Tuileries Palace from royalists. At the same time, the bridge became the Pont Nacional. After Bonaparte ceased to be a general and became an emperor, the bridge was renamed the Tuileries. After the restoration, the bridge became Royal again. After that, the French, tired of renaming, took up more serious matters and demolished the Tuileries Palace and abolished the monarchy in principle. But the Royal Bridge was left...

We crossed over this bridge and we went under this bridge a number of times on the Batobus (see my review of that). It's a nice and stately bridge which honored the king. Today, as we pass under, there are a number of multi colored red directional signs.

An attractive bridge that links up the Louvre area to the Left Bank. Take a walk across it, linger, take a few photos of the river and enjoy the views and breezes.

Our cabbie took us across this bridge fairly late at night and the views were gorgeous, of the river and both banks. This is in the center of town, the Louvre, Ile de la Cite, other bridges, and everything was lit up, sparkling!

Spotted this whilst we were on our hop on hop off tour of Paris, all the bridges are different which makes them easy to identify, this one notably for its "hump" and number of arches.

This stone bridge spanning the Seine, alongside the edge of the Louvre, gets its name from the fact, that King Louis XIV financed the project hence Pont Royal. The humpback in the middle makes it different to it cousins up and down the river, making it an historical monument.

Trully royal-looking bridge at the heart of the city, by the Louvre. Distinguished by the characteristic hump.

This stone pedestrian and vehicular bridge with five arches spans 110 metres across the River Seine and connects the Louvre and Tuileries Gardens on the Right Bank with the Musee D'Orsay on the Left Bank. This bridge was built between 1685 and 1689 and replaced an earlier 1632 wooden bridge which burnt down.

The bridge was entirely financed by King Louis XIV, hence its name "Pont Royal". It did though undergo several iterations in name during the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Empire but reverted to its original name in 1814 after the fall of the Empire.
