  • It starts from the grand theatre and ends (student neighborhood) victory square. It is the longest street of bordeaux (from france?). pedestrian, crowded most of the time. It leads on lots of little interesting streets (door dijeaux, old bordeaux... and restaurants). essentially trade and franchise. at the beginning of the galeries lafayette Bordeaux who have nothing to envy to the Parisian Street (but small format of racing!). If one likes Walkabouts.

  • A cool and easy-going area to visit with s lot to see and do and helpful and friendly people. Easy accessible and variety of goods to purchase. A must to see. 
  • A must for Bordeaux shopping! and yet St Catherine has evolved over time. There is now what one finds everywhere in all major cities of the province. Franchises, even franchises that offer uniformity of the commercial offer for those who want to still cross the door of a store. Pedestrian, with a few bikes in the opposite direction, it became more a walk than a qualitative shopping space.
