It's nice to walk this bridge and the places there. You can find also nice corners like the Republican Spanish Quai.

In between Pont Neuf and the Pont des Catalans over the river Garonne is the bridge Pont Saint-Pierre. It connects the place Saint-Pierre on one side to the hospice of the Grave on the other. The first bridge was built between 1849 and 1852 on two piles of stone and bricks which supported a wooden platform supported by reinforced by wire ropes. It was a toll bridge for pedestrians and carriages to pass over. During the great flood of 1875 the support cables were cut by a city engineer. Rebuilt in 1877 as a toll-free pedestrian bridge, the city decided to rebuild it as a suspension bridge with metal frame in 1927, and it lasted for 60 years. But in 1987 it was completely rebuilt from steel-concrete composite with a 240 meters long steel deck at the cost of 30 million francs. The city took the old lampposts from suspension bridge and used them on Pont des Catalans bridge. Tip: This is a great bridge at night to take photos of the river activity and light up surrounding buildings.…

We walked up and down the bridge a few times and really loved the rover views as well as the views of Pont Neuf. Great design and nice walk.

After Pont Neuf this one is less interesting especially at night when Pont Neuf is illuminated. Nevertheless a a useful bridge but a straightforward functional design.
