Pont Saint-Michel

Pont Saint-Michel

Pont Saint-Michel is a bridge linking the Place Saint-Michel on the left bank of the river Seine to the Île de la Cité. It was named after the nearby chapel of Saint-Michel. It is near Sainte Chapelle and the Palais de Justice.First constructed in 1378, it has been rebuilt several times, most recently in 1857.
The construction of a stone bridge was decided upon in 1378 by the Parlement de Paris after an accord with the chapter of the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, the provost of Paris, and the city's merchants. A location downstream of Petit-Pont was chosen, on the line of Rue Saint-Denis, from the Grand-Pont on the right bank and of Rue de la Harpe on the left bank. This allowed for a direct route across Île de la Cité.

Love the lighting here. It's warm, yet ominous of something indefinable.

A fine night capture of this beautiful setting, Jose.
The spectacular interior of Sainte Chapelle was perhaps the highlight of our Paris visit.
