Abstract

The River Seine is the life-blood of Paris. Thirty-seven bridges cross it; five are pedestrian only. Some of them include Pont Saint-Michel (between the Rive Gauche and the Île de la Cité); Pont Neuf (Paris’s oldest bridge); Pont de la Concorde; Pont de l’Alma, the place where Princess Diana met her tragic death in 1997; and Pont Royal. Reconstructed in stone between 1685 and 1689 by architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart (1646–1708), the last was named by Louis XIV. During the First French Empire (1804-1814), Napoléon I renamed it Pont des Tuileries. In 1814 it reverted back to the royal name.
