Saint-Jacques-du-Haut-Pas. Sur le chemin des pèlerins de Compostelle, la commanderie des Hospitaliers de Saint-Jacques-du-Haut-Pas, ainsi nommés en souvenir de la bourgade d'Alto Pascio, près de Lucques, avait fondé un hôpital dont la chapelle servait aux paroissiens du faubourg Saint-Jacques. Une première église indépendante, construite en 1584, se révèle vite insuffisante. Elle est remplacée en 1630 par l'édifice actuel, dont la première pierre du choeur est posée par Gaston d'Orléans, frère de Louis XIII. Interrompus faute de crédits, les travaux reprennent grâce à la générosité d'Anne-Geneviève de Bourbon-Condé (1619 -1679): la célèbre Frondeuse, soeur des princes de Conti et de Condé, avait été élevée au couvent des carmélites voisin. L'architecte Gittard achève en 1684 la nef et la façade.

This Bridge was designed in 1830 by Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806 - 1859) Construction began in 1836 but was interrupted in 1834 through the lack of funds. It was not until 1864 five years after Brunel's death that the bridge was completed as a monument to his fame, the chains used being those from the Hungerford Bridge designed and erected by him in 1843.
