View Pont Notre-Dame (Notre-Dame Bridge) in 360 virtual tour

The Notre Dame Bridge built over the Seine River is one of the oldest and most popular bridges in Paris. The bridge connects the right bank of the Seine River to the Ile de Cite Island. The place at which the modern Pont Notre Dame is located is the same place where the original bridge was located. It was called Grand Port back then. Unfortunately, the bridge was completely destroyed by the floods in 1406. In 1412, on orders of Charles VI of France, the reconstruction of the bridge was started. The construction took almost seven years. The new bridge made of solid wood was named Notre Dame. In 1499, the wooden structure of the bridge collapsed. Stone foundations were laid in the same year to provide structural stability to the bridge. The construction work was completed in 1507. In 1853, a new structure of the bridge was built on top of the old stone foundation. To improve the flow of the river and passenger boats, it was decided to rebuild the bridge, this time in metal. The bridge was inaugurated by Raymond Poincare in 1919. Some of the most visited tourist attractions located in close proximity of the Notre Dame Bridge is Tour Saint Jacques Tower, Hotel de Ville, Theatre de la Ville, La Conciergerie, Fountaine du Palmier, Notre Dame Cathedral and Pont au Change
