Neighborhood Shopping
Rue Ste Catherine--the longest pedestrian street in Europe--is the main shopping area in the city. The 1.2 km (.75 mi) rue runs north and south, linking Place de la Comédie and Place de la Victoire. At the midpoint, visit Place Saint-Project to see its church, bell tower, and fountain. In addition to individual shops along the street, you 'll also find the entrance to Galerie Bordelaise, a shopping mall that opened in 1834. Put Rue Ste Catherine on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Bordeaux vacation builder.
