Rue Saint Catherine

This entirely pedestrianised street is over a kilometre long and offers some of the best shopping in Bordeaux. It is one of the oldest streets in town, dating back to the Roman period.

 

Grand Theatre

This is the city’s cultural icon, built between 1773 and 1780 as a testament to the growing prosperity of Bordeaux’s emerging bourgeoisie. This glorious building is one of the last remaining 18th century theatres in the world. The theatre is still used as an opera house and performance hall.

 

Cathedral of St Andre

The largest church in Bordeaux. It contains some impressive 13th century sculptures and a 47 metre belfry tower, built in the 15th century.
