  • In addition to the outdoor visit, I recommend you the visit inside. A small Museum presents the techniques and tools of construction of buildings and walls as the gate, in addition to show the mechanisms of defence of the door and present a summary history of the hundred years war. There was also a section on the history of the port of Bordeaux that interested us less.

  • Medieval gate today restored and are open to attend, however, inside you will not find anything special. One of the most beautiful places in Bordeaux. A number of cafés and restaurants. Recommend.

  • Iconic medieval looking porte near the place du bourse. Very cool and probably the best of Bordeaux's portes.
  • Come chill this is the open square with great crowds and the legendary Chez Fred cafė
  • Magical place by day but especially by night time.
  • What I liked most was the video animation on the story of Aquitaine, from English to French. Great moment of patriotism for a French.
  • Very beautiful piece of arquitecture! I loved it.

Where to stay in Bordeaux

Most hotels in Bordeaux sit conveniently located a stone's throw away from the train station. Look to Quinconces Square and Gambetta Square for high-end hotels. Those who prefer more budget-friendly accommodations may want to seek out a youth hostel--a relatively recent addition to the city. To secure a spot here, make sure to book ahead of time. In addition to hotels and hostels, choose from guest rooms in a typical Bordeaux house, or a family-friendly beachside campsite.
