Long Description:
[FR] La Grande Boire est un ruisseau traversant le bas de la ville de Luynes. Ce ruisseau a la particularité de ne pas avoir de source : il est formé par capillarité, l'eau de La Loire s'infiltrant à travers le sol pour remplir le lit du ruisseau.

Ce pont en pierre enjambe le ruisseau, en parallèle de l'Avenue de l'Europe et face au parc des Varennes. Il est composé de deux arches pour trois piliers. Le parapet est constitué de pierres en calcaire lacustre de Touraine. Le bâti du pont est constitué en pierre meulière. Ce pont permet d'accéder à un champ.
