Pont de la Tournelle Bridge

Chigirinsky
Pont de la Tournelle (Tournelle Bridge in English), is an arch bridge spanning the river Seine in Paris. The Pont de la Tournelle was intentionally built lacking symmetry, in order to emphasize the shapeless landscape in the part of the Seine that it bestrides. Consisting of a grand central arch that links the riverbanks via two smaller arches, one on each side, it's decorated on the Eastern bank with a pylon built on the left pier's cutwater, and a statue of St. Genevieve, the patron saint of Paris, atop of the pylon, designed by Polish-French monumental sculptor Paul Landowski. #Bridge #Pont_de_la_Tournelle
