Girlwing and I looked at the Bordeaux city map and discussed what we should do. We decided to focus on the old parts of the town and to see a couple of churches.
First we took the tram to Place des Quinconces. It is a large open area where it used to be a defense building for the city. When it was no longer needed they tore it down and this large empty space was left.
Place des Quinconces they also erected a huge pillar with interesting bronze statues on the sides.
Outside the theatre.
A crowded shopping street.
View down a street.
Saint Emilion where we went earlier in the week.
The fancy shopping street after closing hours.
The Bordeaux tram.
Might be a small triumphal arch.
