The oldest standing bridge over the Seine river has a long and colorful history. It was the city’s link to it’s heart, the Ile de la Cite; a lively centre of crime and commerce. The last Grand Master of the Templars was executed here by burning. In the 18th and 19th centuries, it was the hangout for gangs, street performers, quacks, false limb makers. The rise of the boulevards led to the Pont Neuf’s decline as a city centre, and soon it was just another bridge to cross.So what is it like today? After some extensive reconstruction and restorative work, the bridge was given an entirely new character. It’s a spot to watch the river slip by, from the extended bastions. It’s a spot for people photography. It’s a spot where boys drop to their knees with a ring in their hands. It’s a spot to fall in love.
