Port of the Moon, Bordeaux

4.7
#2 of 7 in Neighborhoods in Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Port of the Moon, the old town in Bordeaux, represents France's ninth-largest city and a World Heritage Site, valued for its architecture and economic advantage as a port city. The nickname comes from the moon-like bend of the Garonne River, upon which the city sits. Founded in 300 BCE by the Celts and known as the longtime capital of the wine industry, Bordeaux is second only to Paris for its number of historical monuments. Visit the tourist office to book a tour, or simply stroll along the waterfront at your own pace. Key sites include the majestic Bourse; Esplanade des Quinconces, the largest square in Europe; Rue Sainte-Catherine, the longest pedestrian street in France; and the Musée des Beaux Arts, featuring paintings by Veronese, Rubens, Van Dyck, Renoir, Matisse, and Picasso.

  • If you're going to Bordeaux there go by what in Spain we would call "promenade" and the typical walk on the West side of the River, to enjoy of the well built that is and relax a little. you will see a lot movement, people doing sport, families strolling, couples... That Yes, I recommend to you day. Night illumination not seemed entirely appropriate.

  • Very nice view of the Garonne Crescent shaped happening in the city from the docks. Beautiful view on the bridge Chaban Delmas and the stone bridge. A lot of people at the docks especially the summer with all the restaurants, brasseries, shops of clothes, shoes, jeans, dishes etc... A lot of protest with the Festival of the River, wine, race of the figaro, concerts and some yachts remaining dock a few days. Moment of pleasant walk with family or friends. To do.
