The Pont Notre-Dame bridge is notable for being the "most ancient" in Paris. The bridge once was lined with structures, including approximately sixty houses. The weight of these buildings caused the Pont Notre-Dame to collapse in the late 15th century, however the structure is known for its repeated rebuildings.
