1. Collégiale Notre-Dame
The Notre-Dame de Poissy collegiate church is a parish Catholic church, located in Poissy, in the Yvelines, in France. It was founded by King Robert the Pious around 1016, but from the 11th century church, only the western bell tower remains. Indeed, the collegiate church was rebuilt from the beginning of the 12th century, and in particular between 1130 and 1160, in the late Romanesque style, then later in the primitive Gothic style, which manifests in the oriental parts. The future Louis IX was baptized there, a few days after his birth in Poissy, on April 25, 1214. This event is the celebrity of the church, and the baptismal font of this time are always preserved. Throughout the old regime, a chapter of canons has its seat in the church, and ensures the parish service for a long time. It is dissolved during the revolution, and the church is closed to worship, to open again until 1802.
2. Vieux Pont de Poissy
The old bridge of Poissy, also called the old bridge of Poissy, is a vaulted bridge in masonry that once crossed the main arm of the Seine over a length of four hundred meters and extended for nearly a kilometer between Poissy and Carrières-sous-Poissy in the department of Yvelines in France. This bridge, of which only six visible arches remain, is located 330 m downstream of the new Poissy bridge and 570 m upstream of the bridge of the island of Migneaux. It was an important commercial communication route in the region from the Middle Ages because of the passage of cattle from vexin and Normandy going to the cattle market of Poissy by the road to Rouen, the surrounding port activity, fishing and milling on its arches. It remained a strategic location during the wars until its destruction in 1944. It is the subject of a project to build a footbridge over its remains by 2024.
