Message Top 10 things to do in Pontoise
A distant northwestern suburb of Paris, Pontoise is in the Cergy-Pontoise conurbation.
The new city of this city was built in the 1980s and became a reference for advanced urban design and architecture. The cityscape showed up in several movies in the 1980s, like Eric Rohmer’s Boyfriends and Girlfriends. And even Cergy-Pontoise can pack a punch, especially when you see Dani Karavan’s incredible Axe Majeur. In Pontoise, you can dip into the old side, where impressionist painters like Pissarro painted Oise and where there is a series of medieval tunnels under the street. And for day and night trips, Paris always takes only half an hour on the train.

1. Axe Majeur
This gigantic monument is difficult to describe when many things are rolled into one. Ax Majeur was designed by Dani Karavan at the time when the new town of Cergy-Pontoise combined.

Beginning with a belvedere tower it’s a dramatic set of sculptures extending along a straight line more than three kilometers in length. A laser beam from the tower points out the route that descends the slope above the Oise and crosses the river.

This line passes through 12 stations, each one with a special meaning for the town: It includes the Oise riverbanks where the Impressionists painted, and a man-made island, built in the Cergy Pond on the other side of the Oise.
