The Pont de l’Île and its Bridge

The Pont de l’Île and its Bridge

The Pont de l’Île proves the fact that Geneva has for centuries been a major crossroads for European trade.
The Pont de l'Île shows that Geneva always demonstrated tenacity over the centuries.

Close by, on Place Bel-Air, we see the little island on the Rhône. The bridge linking the two river banks was destroyed by Julius Caesar in 58 BC. The bridge was rebuilt and Geneva again thrived as a European centre of trade. Of the 13th century fortified castle, only the tower remains today. Nearby the Brasserie des Halles of the island can be found where you can take a short gourmand break.
