The name of the bridge comes from the tower that was nearby in the 12th century.
The statue on the bridge that was placed upon its construction is the result of a competition for the design of the bridge, which was won by the Guidetti brothers, and at the top of the structure in the shape of an arch was sculpted the image of Genevieve, the patron saint of Paris, looking towards the east, the direction from which all the invasions of Paris happened. The figure of Saint Genevieve was made by the sculptor Paul Landowski
