Pont du Carrousel

Pont du Carrousel

Chigirinsky
The Pont du Carrousel is a bridge in Paris, which spans the River Seine between the Quai des Tuileries and the Quai Voltaire. Begun in 1831 in the prolongation of the rue des Saints-Pères on the Left Bank, the original bridge was known under that name until its inauguration, in 1834, when king Louis-Philippe named it Pont du Carrousel, because it opened on the Right Bank river frontage of the Palais du Louvre near the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel in front of the Tuileries. The bridge's architect is Antoine-Rémy Polonceau. #bridge #Carrousel #France #Paris #Pont #river #Seine
