Photographer's Note

Dans le prolongement du quartier de la Petite France à Strasbourg se trouvent les Ponts Couverts. C'est un ensemble de trois ponts enjambant les bras de l'Ill. Ils sont dominés par quatre tours carrées et massives du 14e siècle, vestiges des anciens remparts. Ils ont gardé leur nom malgré la disparition de leur toiture au 18e siècle.

In the extension of the District of the Petite France in Strasbourg are covered bridges. It is a set of three bridges over the arms of the river Ill. They are dominated by four square and massive towers of the 14th century, remains of the ancient ramparts. They kept their name despite the disappearance of their roof in the 18th century.
