4/38.- Bordeaux, Basilique & Fleche Saint Michel


The 'Saint Michel' church is one of the main landmarks in Bordeaux. The church and its bell tower were built at the end of the XV century. Its steeple, 114 meters, is the second tallest in France. The tower was twice struck by lightning, and at the end of the XVII century a hurricane seriously damaged its structure. It was not until 1865 that it was repaired. Since then is one of the most astonishing views in Bordeaux.

Recently UNESCO added the French Pilgrim routes of Santiago de Compostela to the list of World Heritage sites. Of the sixty-nine monuments accepted, three are in Bordeaux: the Saint-André Cathedral, the Saint-Seurin Basilica and the Saint-Michel Basilica.
