Petit Futé's opinion on PONT ALEXANDRE-III
On one side Les Invalides, on the other the Grand and Petit Palais... A breathtaking perspective! This Parisian building bears the name of the terrible Tsar Alexander III, his son, Nicolas II, laid the first stone during his visit to France in 1896. Built just before the First World War, this bridge quickly became the symbol of the Franco-Russian friendship. Inaugurated on the occasion of the 1900's World Exhibition and classified as a historical monument since 1975, it's now indissociable from Parisian landscape. Consisting of only one steel arch, this work has an important Louis XIV-style decoration. Two impressive pylons of 17 m are located on each side of the bridge. Surmounted by majestic wheelie pegasuses, they represent La Renommée des Arts, La Renommée des Sciences, La Renommée du Commerce et de l'Industrie. At their base, you can find some statues of seated women, they pay tribute to the greatness of France at various periods of its history. A masterpiece that will remain etched in your memory!
