Pont Saint-Michel

5ème arrondissement

Pont Saint Michel is a bridge that crosses the Seine between the Place Saint Michel in the Ile de la Cité. It has the distinction of serving as boundaries between 1st, 4th, 5th and 6th arrondissements of Paris. His name was given to him because of its proximity to a chapel that once existed in the Royal Palace (now the Palace of Justice). It was built in 1378 and rebuilt several times, most recently in 1857. It is 62 meters long by 30 meters wide. As on many Parisians bridges, houses were built on it until the bridge collapsed in 1408.
