  • We saw this whilst on a hop on hop off trip, it looks like it's popular with the birds, no need to spend much time here.  more »
  • Located on the Ile de la cite is this Equestrian statue of King Henri IV, which is actually a replica the original was melted down during the French Revolution.  more »

  • Quiet definitely. Boat cruise start there. A willow tree at the point is a sacred spot for lovers.
  • One of the interesting things to see at the Western end of Ile de la Cite is the Equestrian Station of Henry IV, King of France between 1589 and 1610. It is a nice statue of an Eastward facing Henry on horseback, located above the small Square du Vert-Galant on Pont Neuf. The bronze statue you see today was built in 1818 by Francois-Frederic Lemot to replace an original statue built in 1614 by order of widowed Queen Marie de' Medici. The original King Henry IV statue was destroyed in 1792 during the French Revolution. Overall, the Equestrian Statue is a nice addition to the collection of attractions and things to see and do at Ile de la Cite. Its nice to stop by for a look after visiting Saint Chapelle, just a few minutes walk away.
