A little history
The 12th century Saint-Hilaire bridge linked the Morard gate to the Saint-Hilaire church, which has now disappeared. This church was next to the Saint-Pierre church.
Travelers arriving from the south or from Orléans would enter the city through this access. It is one of the only bridges that survived the bombings of the Second World War.
