This may well be my favourite bridge anywhere. It spans the wide, turbid and deceptively rapid Garonne close to the centre of the city. It is both long and broad and its graceful arch appears quite low over the racing water. The contrasting honey-tinted limestone...More

This is a must see. It was built by Napolean and it is said to have treasure hidden inside it. Great to see by Canoes.

Good place to take a nice walk and look back on the city. The bridge itself is lovely. Check out it's history. It was very difficult to build this bridge because of the rough waters here.
