Show sight on map

Poissy Notre Dame College Church is a Roman Catholic parish church located in Poissy, Evelyn Province, France. It was founded by the pious King Robert around 1016, but in the 11th century church, only the bell tower-porch on the west side is left. In fact, the College Church was rebuilt in the early 12th century, particularly between 1130 and 1160, in the late Romanesque style and later in the early Gothic style, which is evident in the eastern region. On April 25th, 1214, a few days after the birth of the future Louis IX, he was baptized here. This event made the church famous, and the baptismal fonts at that time are still preserved there today. Throughout the ancient system, a canon branch occupied its seat in the church and provided parish services for a long time. It was disbanded during the revolution, the church was closed, and did not reopen until 1802.

The ancient Posey Bridge, also known as Posey Ancient Bridge, is an arched masonry bridge that once spanned the main tributary of the Seine River and is 400 meters long, extending nearly one kilometer between Posey and Carriles-Su-Posey in the French province of Evelyn. The bridge is 330 metres downstream of the new Poissy Bridge and 570 metres upstream of the Migneaux Island Bridge, with only six arches visible. It has been an important trade route in the region since the Middle Ages, as cattle from Vexin and Normandy reach Poissy's cattle market via the Rouen Highway, surrounding port activity, fishing and milling on its arches. It remained a strategic location during the war until it was destroyed in 1944. It is planned to build a footbridge on its ruins by 2024.
