Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Bridge
The Pont Alexandre III is one of the most emblematic bridges in Paris because of its architecture and location. Pont Alexandre III connects les Invalides on the Left Bank to the Grand Palais and Petit Palais on the Right Bank. The single long, low arch of the bridge, with its Beaux Arts and Art Nouveau décor, exemplifies the Parisian Belle Époque (“Beautiful Era”) of 1871 to 1914
At its four extremities are huge 17 metre-high pylons crowned with gilt bronze sculptures of winged horses representing the Arts, Sciences, Commerce and Industry.
