7/38.- Bordeaux, Place de la Victoire, Porte d'Aquitaine


During the 13th and 14th century the city underwent an expansion period. The wine exports made this one of the richest cities in France. Four centuries later Bordeaux became the first port in France, thanks to the trade with the colonies. In the 19th century the city was completely renewed with the construction of new bridges, train lines, sewage and gas networks. During the last century the city of Bordeaux grew with the construction of new districts. In the 21st century one of the city's main exportation is still the fruit of the poor lands that surround the city: the Bordeaux wine.
