The Square du Vert-Galant is a small public garden located on the western tip of the Ile de la Cité. 
Erected in tribute to Henri IV and his numerous mistresses.

 The Île de la Cité  is one of two remaining natural islands in the Seine within the city of Paris (the other 
being the Île Saint-Louis). It is the centre of Paris and the location where the medieval city was refounded.

The Pont Neuf (New Bridge) is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris, France. It stands 
by the western (downstream) point of the Île de la Cité, the island in the middle of the river that was, between 
250 and 225 BC, the birthplace of Paris, then known as Lutetia, and during the medieval period, the heart of 
the city.
