This is the oldest surviving bridge of Orléans (inauguration date: 1760). It was built in the 18th century, an epoch of wealth and of large transformation for the city of Orléans. Originally called "Pont Royal", this bridge is now renamed by the king of England George the 5th (1910-1936), faithful ally of France during the WWI. You can click here if you want a close-up on the city, seen from the bridge itself. Nowadays, there are 6 bridges crossing the Loire river in Orléans, including the rail bridge and the motorway (toll road). however, the most recent bridge is a free road bridge (including large foot and cycle roads) inaugurated in 2001.
