Sightseeing in Bordeaux

- Bordeaux Historic Center

Home to some of Bordeaux’s most visited sites, the Old City centre dates to Roman times and was the birthplace of Decimius Magnus Ausonius, Michel de Montaigne and Richard II of England, among others. It is the most visited area of the city, housing great architectural buildings such as the 18th century Grand Théâtre, the 14th century Saint-André Cathedral and Saint-Seurin Basilica. It is also home to the largest square in Europe, Place des Quinconces, dating back to 1818.

- Cathedrale St. Andre

A wander through the streets of the pedestrian quarter is a must for any historian – the buildings range from old stone medieval structures to regimented Belle Époque facades. Emerge at the St Andre Cathedral, the center point of the Old Town. Its spires rise dramatically into the sky, and the whole building is an impressive collection of eras and styles, from the gothic to the enlightened. It has been in continuous use for over a thousand years and is a stopping point for many on the Camino de Santiago. Inside, beneath the high vaulted ceilings, there are ancient relics and a creepy, atmospheric crypt.
