The valley of the Dordogne...
Favorite thing: The valley of the Dordogne river: east of Bordeaux you find one of the most beautiful river valleys in France. It is a wonderful combination of the oldest human paintings (Lascaux - see Travelogue on my France page) with medieval castles, small and romantic villages, the wines of Bergerac and allways again and again the rock formations.
Fondest memory: pic shows: the village of Beynac at the Dordogne typically located under one of the limestone rocks
Chateau La Brède, a few km...
Favorite thing: Chateau La Brède, a few km south of Bordeaux was the home of Charles Louis de Secondat, Baron de Labrède et Montesquieu. He was one of the most important philosophus of the 17th century, worldfamous for his writings which helped to prepare the way for the French Revolution. Most of his time he spent in Bordeaux where he was the president of the city parliament for decades.
Place de la Comedie
Favorite thing: Place de la Comedie is the heart of the city center in Bordeaux. It is located on the site of a Roman Forum and just opposite you find the Grand Theatre.
Favorite thing: I saw this carousel on my way around the city street.... and its nice to see the family hang out with the kids....
Favorite thing: When I was walking around the street in Bordeaux, I met some building have an unique style, have window but no room inside...
Monument dux Girondins Fountain
Favorite thing: As we were walking along the city, we came across this monument flanked by fountains. The fountains symbolize triumph of Liberty & the Republic and is crowned with Liberty breaking from her shackles.
Favorite thing: The Saint-Andre Cathedral is the biggest church in Bordeaux and it was declared part of the Santiago Pilgrims' World Heritage. The origins of this church date back from the 11th century.
Watch out for all those beautiful details
Favorite thing: Everywhere in Bordeaux you see great details. On buildings, lanterns, doors.. This gateway was the entrance to a small shopping passage next to the Notre-Dame
Fondest memory: Bordeaux has charme! I liked the spirit and the atmosphere of this city which reminded me to southern countries. Walking in the old town centre was really great.
