Bordeaux has an exceptional graveyard. It is quit large... And really stuffed with monuments. Small gothic churches , statues of angels. You can't walk here on your own but a friendly men of staff will probably guide the tourist arround. There are also some modern thinks. A must see if u like this kind of stuff...
While being in Bordeaux, many people stay downtown or go to the wineyards, or Arcachon...and they miss one of the most exciting beach of the areas : Lacanau!
Lacanau is one of the best surf spot for pro competition...you have to take care when swimming in this area but if you like bodyboarding, surfing, ...you will love Lacanau.
It's only 40 miles west from Bordeaux, but be carefull on the road as many accidents occurs due to the small road...
Bordeaux was once one of the finest ports in France because of the deep Garonne River. And walking along the Garonne River at night is breathtaking as it illuminates the Garonne with its lights.
Across the Public Jardin we can find the champ du Mars, and where there is one building atracted me, its nice and have several statue out of the building...
This building in the Public Jardin, I dont have any idea whats building is that.... but its a nice building.
Don't miss the fabulous town of Rocamadur - it's high up and worth the climb. Lots of pilgrims come here to say a few prayers.
This was one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. The town is BrantomeI could look at this water forever.
even if this year is a bad year to visit bordeaux (new tramway !!!) enjoy every days a new theater !!! nice colors, life,
also if you are not in hanggliding/paragliding you should visit the great dunes of pyla, which are the highest in whole europe.
