A walk in Bordeaux

Has the "sleeping beauty" woken up? Not really.

A little walk in the city of Bordeaux, a city that has long been called the "sleeping beauty". The city center of Bordeaux is still very active with its numerous shops, you will easily find nice bars and restaurants at the bend of a street to welcome you. Nevertheless we remain on a mixed impression with the city of Bordeaux, we find beautiful monuments, beautiful shopping streets but it lacks a little life in its main streets. Its nickname of "sleeping beauty" is still relevant in 2021.

The ecological transition

The ecological transition
You will find everything that can run on an electric motor in the streets of Bordeaux. Of course this is at the expense of the pedestrian who risks his life every moment in the streets of this city.

Be careful with the perspectives if you come to Bordeaux for the first time, you often have to walk a lot, the streets are big and wide. It is not a very pedestrian friendly city.

The monument to the Girondins, place des Quinconces,
Very beautiful fountain, a must see. The monument is dedicated to the deputies of Girondins who died during the French Revolution. You can see the Republic perched on its chariot throwing in a precipice men symbolizing the Lie, the Ignorance and the Vice. Quite a program.

The banks of the Garonne

It's beautiful and it's very long. The right word would be boring.

The water mirror

The water mirror is located in front of the Place de la Bourse. It is a recent creation, dating from 2006. The water mirror works during the summer season with water projections between 10am and 10pm.
