1/38.- Welcome to Bordeaux, France!!!
Welcome to Bordeaux!!! This city in Aquitaine,
in the west of France, is worldwide famous for its
wines, but lately the city itself is drawing the
attention of tourists thanks to its splendid gothic
cathedrals and 18th century mansions. On this
Photographic Tour I will try to show you some of the
monuments in this city. At the end of the tour we
will visit one of the vineyards -'Chateaux'- in the
region and learn something about the Bordeaux
We will start our visit in the 'Quartier
Saint-Eloi'. This is one of the most
picturesque districts in Bordeaux. In the photo you
see the 'Grosse Cloche' (Great Bell), which used
to be the bell of the Town Hall's belfry. Currently
the Town Hall is elsewhere, but the bell is still
one of the symbols of Bordeaux.
In this tour we will follow, more or less, the
tourist itinerary recommended by the city's tourist
office. One of the differences is that the
"official" tour starts at the 'Jardin Public', and
we will start the tour in front of this bell tower.
Walking along the Victor Hugo street, we will get
to the 'Porte Bourgogne' on our right ...
