Pont des Amours (Lovers' Bridge)
The best spot for lovers to take wonderful photos!
It is said, that before, it was a meeting point for prostitutes, but I prefer the Legend which says that lovers who kiss in the middle of the Bridge will be together forever!
The Bridge allows you to go from Jardin de l'Europe to the Pâquier, passing over the Thiou river which is entering the city.
in 1845, a wooden bridge was built for people to admire the view. In 1859, Claude Grandchamp rebuilt one in cast iron, but this is expensive to maintain and disturbing the boats.
So in 1907, it is replaced by an iron bridge made by Charles Galletto.
Do not miss this symbol of Annecy from where you can enjoy the view on the lake and the Ile aux Cygnes (Swan Island).
