The Pont Neuf is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris. It connects the Rive Gauche of Paris with the Rive Droite. The last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, Jacques de Molay, was burned at the stake on the Île de la Cité near the Pont Neuf, on 18 March 1314. The execution was ordered by Philippe le Bel (Philip the Fair). At the point where the bridge crosses the Île de la Cité, there stands a bronze equestrian statue of Henri IV.

The Pont Neuf (French pronunciation: ​[pɔ̃ nœf], New Bridge) is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris, France. Its name, which was given to distinguish it from older bridges that were lined on both sides with houses, has remained. It stands by the western point of the Île de la Cité, the island in the middle of the river that was the heart of medieval Paris.
