Sightseeing in Bordeaux

Rue Sainte-Catherine, Bordeaux, France

Sightseeing in Bordeaux

At the center of Bordeaux is the city’s Golden Triangle, formed by the roads called Cours de l’Intendance, Cours Georges Clemenceau and Allées de Tourny. Within and around this triangle are endless shopping opportunities, including great spots to purchase Bordeaux wines. The Rue Sainte-Catherine is a lovely place for shopping or a brief break at a café, and it is the longest pedestrian street in all of Europe. The city is also host to 20 outdoor and covered markets, including some of the best organic markets in France.

  • Basilique Saint Seurin
    • The Basilique Saint Seurin, located on Place des Martyrs de la Résistance in Bordeaux, is not the most elegant church, but it is the city’s oldest. With a crypt dating back to the fourth century, it appears a bit worn, but with a tremendous amount of character. A delicately-carved throne was once used by a pope. Its Merovingian crypt (the Merovingian royal line claimed to be descended from Christ), is worth a visit alone... See more

  • Le Palais Rohan
    • Le Palais Rohan has served as city hall since the 1800s, although it was originally constructed as the home of an archbishop. This attraction is likely one reason Bordeaux has been compared to Versailles. Don’t miss the stunning trompe l’oeil décor in the dining room.

  • Basilique Saint Michel
    • Basilique Saint Michel, Place Canteloup in Bordeaux, has a spire stretching nearly 400 feet high, the tallest ancient monument in southwest France and the second-highest in France. Dating back to the 1400s, it is a wonderful example of medieval religious architecture... See more

  • Lascaux II
    • Lascaux II, in Montignac, southeast of Périgueux, is the sister site to Europe’s premier prehistoric painted cave, Lascaux (which is closed to the public for its preservation). This Lascaux is built into the same hillside, but it is a replica of the original. Regardless, it features the same remarkable paintings of horses, bulls, bears and the famous unicorn... See more
