One of the oldest metal bridges in the world, the 'Pont Victor-Emmanuel', also known as the 'Pont des Anglais', is still used to cross the Isère.

Description

Building for this bridge started in 1856 by the Englishman, Newman, at the request of Victor Emmanuel I, King of Sardinia and the Savoie, who wanted to open a new road. Finished under the reigns of Charles-Félix, then Charles-Albert, the 236m-long structure, with 5 central spans, became obsolete from 1874, when a railway was built on the right bank towards St-Pierre d'Albigny. Today, the bridge is undergoing renovation works.
